West with the Night
West in the Night
by Beryl Markham

"I knew Beryl Markham fairly well in Africa and never would have suspected that she could and would put pen to paper except to write in her flyer's log book. As it is, she has written so well, and marvelously well, that I was completely ashamed of myself as a writer. I felt that I was simply a canpenter with words, picking up whateverwas furnished on the job and nailing them together and sometimes making an OK pig pen. But she can write rings around all of us who consider ourselves writers. The only part of it that I know about personally, on on account of having been there at the time and heard the other people's stories, are absolutely true.... I wish you would get it and read it because it is really a bloody wonderful book." —Ernest Hemingway
