Isak Dinesen - LIFE STORIES
 
 
2/5/1959     Blixen, McCullers, Marilyn Monroe
On this day in 1959, Carson McCullers hosted a small luncheon party in order that seventy-four-year-old Baroness Karen Blixen-Finecke (Isak Dinesen) could meet Marilyn Monroe. By all accounts, the three women hit it off wonderfully -- though Arthur Miller says the legend of them dancing together on the marble-topped dinner table is an exaggeration.
