Book Review, August 1998well researchedabsorbinga sympathetic yet candid portrait of Blixen and her complex relationships with her husband and lover Publishers Weekly, April 10, 1995Donelson has committed herself to separating the facts of Blixen s life from her self created myth The result is a book that traces the transformation of an unassuming young grand dame of the veldt Blixen went to Africa in 1914, when she was 28 In the course of her narrative, Donelson, an M.D., succeeds in debunking with alacrity and insight some of the commonly held assumptions about Blixen s medical history She doubts, for example, that Blixen s later physical ailments were the result of syphilis contracted from her husband during their first year of marriage More likely, they were caused by the arsenic she took for years as a tonic The discussions of Blixen s physical state and frequent bouts of depression are concrete and convincing.The biography brings to light a wealth of detail about her African experiences Kirkus, August 1998Donelson has written a fascinating biography, a true picture of Karen Blixen, her lover, Denys Finch Hatton, and her husband, baron Bror Blixen John Coyne, RPCV Writers
