Babette's Feast and Other Stories, Paperback / softback Book

Babette's Feast and Other Stories Paperback / softback

Description

These five rich, witty and magical stories from the author of Out of Africa include one of her most well-known tales, 'Babette's Feast', which was made into the classic film.

It tells the story of a French cook working in a puritanical Norwegian community, who treats her employers to the decadent feast of a lifetime.

There is also a real-life Prospero and his Ariel in 'Tempests', a mysterious pearl-fisher in 'The Diver' and a brief, tragic encounter in 'The Ring'. All the stories have a mystic, fairy-tale quality, linked by themes of angels, the sea, dreams and fate.

They were among the last to be written by Isak Dinesen, and show her as a master of short fiction. 'Immensely satisfying . . . splendid imaginative creations, the work of a writer of stature.' The Times Literary Supplement 'Acutely perceptive, often mysterious stories.' Sunday Telegraph
