The critically acclaimed author of the bestselling WHAT I LOVED reflects on life, love and literature


Siri Hustvedt's first novel, The Blindfold, was published by Sceptre in 1993. Since then she has published The Enchantment of Lily Dahl, What I Loved, The Sorrows of an American, The Summer Without Men and The Blazing World, which was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize in 2014 and won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Fiction. She is also the author of the poetry collection Reading To You, and four collections of essays -Yonder, Mysteries of the Rectangle: Essays on Painting, A Plea for Eros and Living, Thinking, Looking, as well as the memoir The Shaking Woman or A History of My Nerves.
Born in Minnesota, Siri Hustvedt now lives in Brooklyn, New York. She has a PhD in English from Columbia University and in 2012 was awarded the International Gabarron Prize for Thought and Humanities.
She delivered the Schelling Lecture in Aesthetics in Munich in 2010, the Freud Lecture in Vienna in 2011 and the opening keynote at the conference to mark Kierkegaard's 200th anniversary in Copenhagen in 2013, while her latest honorary doctorate is from the University of Gutenburg in Germany. She is also Lecturer in Psychiatry at Weill Cornell Medical College and has written on art for the New York Times, the Daily Telegraph and several exhibition catalogues.


'She strides across these pages: a 6ft tall Amazonian New whom we are at once riveted and faintly disconcerted...Hustvedt is a lucid writer, whose spare, elegant prose wears lightly its eclectic reference points.' -- Observer 'Thoughtful, sensuous essays...her enthusiasms are oddly infectious' -- Daily Telegraph 'A luminous collection of mind-expanding pieces on literary and philosophical themes...A book to renew one's faith in the literary essay' -- Robert McCrum, Observer 'An intellectual, emotional and elegantly written collection that leaves the reader with plenty to ponder...Her passion for language and literature makes the prose leap from the page...Hustvedt is, quite simply, an extraordinary literary talent. Read it, ponder it, then go read it again.' -- Image
