18.10.2015 - Isabel Allende

On 18 October the world famous author Isabel Allende will be our guest. Allende made her breakthrough with her novel The House of the Spirits and has since written 20 more books, with 65 million copies sold worldwide. In 2014 she received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from president Barack Obama: the highest civilian award of the United States.

At BorderKitchen she will talk about her latest novel The Japanese Lover, a book only she could write: colourful, full of drama, humour, cliff hangers and two women you can’t help but love.
Isabel Allende will be interviewed (in English) by Niña Weijers, author of the novel De consequenties.
Actress Lindertje Mans will read from the book.
El amante Japonés is published in The Netherlands by Uitgeverij Wereldbibliotheek as De Japanse minnaar, a translation by Henk van den Heuvel.
