Synopsis: Last Tales is a collection of twelve of the last tales that Isak Dinesen wrote before her death in 1962. They include seven tales from Albondocani, a projected novel that was never completed; "The Caryatids," an unfinished Gothic tale of a couple bedeviled by an old letter and a gypsy's spell; and three tales of winter, including "Converse at Night in Copenhagen," a drunken, all-night conversation between a boy-king, a prostitute, and a poor young poet.

Product Description: These ornate, mysterious stories, written in Isak Dinesen's later years, range from a chilling gothic tale of sorcery and witchcraft, "The Caryatids", to a glittering, haunting depiction of an aristocratic family in 19th-century Denmark in "Copenhagen Season".
