Isabel Allende (Episode #102)

KQED 9: Mon, Mar 19, 2012 -- 11:30 PM

Join host John Jacobsen in the lush Marin County home of Isabel Allende, the most widely-read writer in the Spanish language, whose eighteen books have been translated into almost as many languages as exist on the planet. Having been called 'genius' by The Los Angeles Times, she has received countless awards and honorary doctorates, including the coveted Dorothy and Lillian Gish Award, granted to writers "who have contributed to the beauty of the world." Fleeing for her life from her home in Chile after her uncle, President Salvatore Allende was thrown from power in an American-supported coup, she writes about what she describes as "marginals... people who stand on the edge and therefore are not sheltered." John Jacobsen delves between the lines to reveal Allende's disarming sensuality and joy for life amid the personal losses and challenges that have made her work so irresistibly multi-layered.
