Why we love this
The Angelic Avengers by Isak Dinesen. Chicago: University Press, 1975. First printing thus. First appearing in 1946, under the pseudonym Pierre Andrezel, this youthful novel by Dinesen fantasizes revenge against oppression, in the style of a Victorian melodrama. Obviously meant to refer to the occupation of Denmark by the Nazis, Dinesen only admitted authorship in 1956. This edition was the first American re-issue, due to the popularity of her other works.
