"Isak Dinesen was lifted to the very pinnacle of literary greatness with her first published book, Seven Gothic Tales. Like the two other collections of stories which came after it, this new one Anecdotes of Destiny, reaffirms her genius for storytelling that is unique , imaginative and exquisitely wrought. To read the five stories in Anecdotes of Destiny is to enter all of life's rooms, brilliantly illuminated." (from the front flap)
