S16, E2: Noah Charney on the life of a writer in Slovenia
May 10, 2021
As a young man, author Noah Charney dreamed of living in Europe. Anywhere in Europe. In fact, he tried out life in some six different countries before landing in Slovenia, the country that would steal his heart.
“There’s a way to actually make the sensation of time feel like it slows down, and is richer and broader.” (Noah, 23:05)
Dr Noah Charney is an internationally best-selling, Pulitzer-nominated author. He spent the early months of lockdown finally tackling an unusual project: a parenting book. He borrows techniques used in teaching at university level, and even some employed by Nobel Prize winners, to help inspire a lifetime love of learning in his daughters (now 6 and 8). His normal work is as a professor of art history specializing in art crime, and he has also become a specialist on his adopted homeland of Slovenia, where he has been an American expat for a decade.
