For the grand finale of our fifth season American adventure (and our 50th episode!), we find ourselves in... Bloomsbury. But we are there for a wonderful reason. To meet the legendary novelist, feminist, and philanthropist Isabel Allende! Isabel is the internationally renowned, bestselling author of works such as House of the Spirits, Of Love and Shadows, Eva Luna, Daughter of Fortune, and her latest breathtaking epic A Long Petal of the Sea. We talked to her about illicit reads, writing superstitions, dogs, poetry and Elvis.
