Slight problem with the reader
Judith Thurman is brilliant. I loved the book! My only complaint is with Davina Porter. She does have a lovely voice and accent but she swallows words and phrases in every paragraph. When listening without headphones, in a car for example, this is very frustrating and annoying.

Yes, she was thorough.
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
Love Davina Porter's voice.
Could you see Isak Dinesen being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Any additional comments?
Too much jumping here and there in her life. Would have preferred a more structured, synchronized biography. Informative but confusing.
