Margaret Atwood on the show-stopping Isak Dinesen
We came across this great article from leading literary light Margaret Atwood, in the equally ubiquitous Guardian newspaper. So many years after her death and Karen Blixen is still making an impression. We can thoroughly recommend this great read about our Karen Blixen.

YOURS, TANNE – NEW LETTERS FROM AFRICA
One hundred years ago, Karen Blixen undertook the expedition of her life to Africa. To celebrate that event and the publication of the new edition of Blixen´s letters from Africa (half of which have never been published before), we have put together a special exhibition, YOURS, TANNE – NEW LETTERS FROM AFRICA. The exhibition consists of a selection of Karen Blixen´s orginal letters as well as newly-discovered letters to Karen Blixen from, among others, Denys Finch Hatton and Bror Blixen. In addition, we will be displaying a number of objects that have never been shown before – for example, Karen Blixen´s original travel trunks. The new letters provide a less glamorous picture of her time in Africa, which was characterized by hard work but also great love, and show how the contours of her future work took shape.
