Isabel Allende discusses what made her reconsider retirement from writing novels and instead write her first work of crime fiction, “Ripper.” She also talks about an unsuccessful attempt to work with her husband, a mystery author. “Art in general is not something you can do with a partner. It’s very hard because the creative process is so organic, so personal, so intimate. How are you going to share that?” Allende said.
