About this book
Subtitled, "The Life & Times Of Denys Finch Hatton", this acclaimed biography of the conservationist, scholar, soldier, white hunter and fabled lover strongly evokes the milieu and landscapes of British East Africa, as well as providing a compelling portrait of the man himself. This paperback edition should do very well. 'She writes beautifully, with a vivid turn of phrase, a sound grasp of history and an impish humour.' "Sunday Times"
Conservationist, scholar, soldier, white hunter and fabled lover - Denys Finch Hatton was an aristocrat of leonine nonchalance. This book reveals the truth behind the author's love affairs with the glamorous aviatrix Beryl Markham, and - famously - with Karen Blixen, a romance immortalized in her memoir Out of Africa.
