A life tragically cut short. A story well told – Silence will Speak

Silence will Speak. This evocative title for the biography is taken from a passage in a short story titled ” Blank page” in Last Tales a collection of short stories by Isak Dinesen.

An atmospheric life story of the enigmatic hero and lover of Karen Blixen aka Isak Dinesen. Readers who love the Oscar award Best picture winner Out of Africa and travellers who have marveled at the vast plains of Africa and its crimson red sunset will delight in this biography. As I read this book while snorkeling in Redang Island I am transported back to my holidays spent in Kenya { formerly British East Africa} and Zimbabwe { formerly Rhodesia} .

Trzebjnski has delved deep into the sources and out of her prodigious research is this marvellous tale of the two protagonists from Out Of Africa. I recommend this book.
