Pseudonym of prominent Danish author Karen Blixen (1885–1962), best known for her account of life in Kenya, Out of Africa, later adapted into an Academy Award–winning film. TLS in Danish, signed “Karen Blixen,” one page both sides, 7.5 x 8.75, July 14, 1959. Letter to a gentleman who had sent her a manuscript sample, in part (translated): "A single point of criticism I wish to make: the persons appearing in this chapter are not sympathetic—that we may say, is not a literary argument, but I felt this way and certainly a greater number of readers will. They are all characterized by a certain arrogance, a property that seems strange to me, and access more difficult.” Central vertical and horizontal folds (passing through a single letter of the signature), slight creasing to corners and folds, and a rusty paperclip impression to reverse, otherwise fine condition. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
