Karen Blixen was a complex personality of immense talent, adventurousness, eccentricity and narcissism. She could be controlling, depressive, generous, stingy, entertaining, and demanding -- often all at once. To be close to her would have been emotionally draining yet strangely energizing mentally. Women of her caliber are rare, which is what makes her such a fascinating read. She's one of those people you're sorry you never met, but this book gives you the vicarious chance to do so. The author delivers a thorough, impartial and engrossing biography.
