In many ways, a love letter written to the people and places that so marked the author, this book tells the story of the love between a Danish and a vagabond in 1920s Kenya. The book has been made into a film.
From the Back Cover
From the moment Karen Blixen arrived in Kenya in 1914 to manage a coffee plantation, her heart belonged to Africa. Drawn to the intense colours and ravishing landscapes, Karen Blixen spent her happiest years on the farm and her experiences and friendships with the people around her are vividly recalled in these memoirs. Out of Africa is the story of a remarkable and unconventional woman and of a way of life that has vanished for ever. Out of Africa was made into a highly acclaimed film, starring Meryl Streep and Robert Redford, and won seven Oscars.See all Product description

This book is a jewel and I join the ranks of those who cannot understand why it was not more lauded as an important work of literature.

Only towards the end of the book does she really mention the events which are the mainstay of the film and even then the reader is surprised to find that they nowhere near tally.
Nothing is neatly tied up at the end: the reader is left with a mass of questiions, which makes the book even more fascinating
