Product Description

Review

Powerful, poetic, unbearably moving: I wept (Clare Francis)

'This is a book that belongs on a shelf with the memoirs of Olive Schreiner, Elspeth Huxley, Beryl Markham – and with Out of Africa Judith Thurman

Ms Gallmann captures perfectly the magic of Kenya, creating an almost overwhelming picture of beauty and drama, pain and joy, death and resurrection . . . Vividly reminiscent of Isak Dinesen (New York Times) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

As a child, Kuki Gallmann discovered the singular magic of Africa. As an adult, she emigrates to Africa with her new husband, Paolo, and her son, Emanuele. Although it is the place she has waited for all her life, she never dreamed of the pain, passion, joy and hardship that were hidden in its vast beauty.

I Dreamed of Africa was first published in 1991 to international acclaim and it became a world-wide bestseller. Her subsequent books, African Nights and Night of the Lions, were also published by Penguin. She lives in Kenya with her daughter and her dogs. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
