In November of 1961, Michael Rockefeller vanished off the coast of Southwest New Guinea while on an art-collecting mission. Despite an exhaustive search, his body was never found and the case remains a mystery. But author Carl Hoffman thinks he may have solved it. Tracing Rockefeller’s final journey, he tells the story of what he found in a new book titled Savage Harvest: A Tale of Cannibals, Colonialism and Michael Rockefeller’s Tragic Quest for Primitive Art.
Then, in 2004, Peruvian writer Isabel Allende joined the American Academy of Arts and Letters. The award-winning author talks with Bob about her book Maya’s Notebook, as well as Allende’s particular contribution to Arts and Letters. [Broadcast Date: April 24, 2014]
