OUT OF AFRICA
The author of Seven Gothic Tales -- presents here reminiscences of twelve years on a coffee farm in Africa, at the foot of the Ngong Hills. Rarely does a book on a remote country convey so fully the feeling of the country and the people. This is a leisurely book -- quiet in spirit; it deals with everyday happenings and centers the interest mainly on the native "squatters" on her farm, her servants, her "chef" Kamante , and reveals the remarkable insight into this wary race, soon staunch in their admiration and gratitude. Anecdotal -- incidental -- in character, but it is the manner of telling that gives it such rare charm, the fluency and case and delightful with and subtlety, which characterized her Seven Gothic Tales.
