(At the age of twenty-seven, Isak Dinesen (nee' Karen Blixen) left Denmark and sailed for East Africa to marry her Swedish cousin, Baron Bror Blixen. Together they bought a four-thousand acre coffee plantation in Kenya, and she managed the plantation from 1914 to 1931 even after she and her husband separated. Her account of those years is transformed with the style of her prose and gift as a storyteller. A vibrant re-creation of those years in Africa.)
