From the skilled author of The Belle of Amherst and Barrymore, Julie Harris starred on Broadway and national tour as Baroness Karen Blixen, aka Isak Dinesen, author of Out of Africa and Seven Gothic Tales. Preparing for a trip to America, the flamboyant author tells of how she traveled to Africa, married a Baron, suffered his neglect and faithlessness while contracting syphillis in the bargain. In Act Two, she reveals delightful tales of her exploits as the toast of New York. This one-woman tour-de-force offers insights and anecdotes galore, a truly captivating portrait of this gifted woman who triumphed over adversity to become one of the most celebrated writers of the 20th century.
