Out of Africa has perhaps brought more Western readers who have never visited that continent close to it than any other book. from 1914 to 1931 Isak Dinesen (the Baroness Blixen) managed a coffee plantation in Kenya. Her account of those years is transformed by the magic of her prose and her supreme gift as a storyteller into a vibrant re-creation of the beauties of the African landscape and the ways of the land and its people.
