Riassunto: Husband to Isak Dinesen, archetypal hero for Ernest Hemingway, a romantic figure of mythic passions for women and adventure, Bror Blixen led a life that exceeded his legend. The author is Blixen's godson.
From Library Journal:
These biographies of two Europeans who lived in early 20th-century Kenya provide a vivid evocation of the colonial era. With his wife, novelist Isak Dinesen, Bror Blixen left Sweden to cultivate coffee in Kenya; he became instead a highly successful white hunter, leading rich Europeans on safari. Archetypal hero for Ernest Hemingway, Blix was also a happy womanizer. Kenya hunter Aschan paints the exotic scenery and wildlife richly, but Blixen's character remains elusive in this brief, sometimes sketchy book. Lovell's biography of aviatrix Beryl Markham more vividly evokes its subject. Raised in Kenya alongside the sons of Nandi hunters, Markham was the first person to fly west across the Atlantic solo, author of the successful West with the Night, and a champion horse trainer. Her lovers included Blixen, Prince Henry, Leopold Stokowski, and many others, but Markham is more remarkable as a woman who lived for herself. Strikingly beautiful, uninterested in motherhood, she could take apart an airplane, fly across the Sahara with a stuttering engine, write a brilliant memoir, and instantly calm an unmanageable horse. An upcoming television miniseries will keep this highly readable book in demand. Bettina Drew, English Dept., City Coll., CUNY
