about this book

This is a collection of twelve of the last tales Dinesen wrote before her death in 1962. They include seven tales from Albondocani, a projected novel that was never completed; "The Caryatids," an unfinished Gothic tale of a couple bedeviled by an old letter and a gypsy's spell; and three tales of winter, including "Converse at Night in Copenhagen," a drunken, all-night conversation between a king, a prostitute, and a poor young poet."The dozen stories in this...collection may be the literary testament of one of the most skilled but least prolific writers of the twentieth century."--Time
