In this episode, host Charlie Connelly delves into the life of Danish author Karen Blixen. “I am not a novelist or even really a writer; I am a storyteller,” she once said. It was a trait she inherited from her father, Wilhelm Dinesen, and led to literary success including Out Of Africa, an account of the years she spent running a coffee plantation in Kenya. In fact, when he accepted his Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954, Ernest Hemingway said that he would have been far happier had it gone to Karen Blixen. Enjoyed this episode?
