  • Type: Short Story Collection
Many of the 19th-century exotics of "Seven Gothic Tales", in fact, are based on originals met in the semifeudal world, simultaneously raffish and posh, rough and luxurious, around Nairobi. - New York Times review John Updike

Seven Gothic Tales is a short story collection by Danish author Karen Blixen published in 1934 soon after she returned to Denmark from nearly two decades living in Africa. She wrote the stories in English and then translated them into Danish. - AsNotedIn
