Internationally acclaimed as a novelist, Siri Hustvedt can also be very hot as a author of non-fiction whose insights are drawn from her large wisdom within the arts, humanities, and sciences.

In this trilogy of works accumulated in one quantity, Hustvedt brings a feminist, interdisciplinary standpoint to a variety of topics. Louise Bourgeois, Pablo Picasso, Susan Sontag and Knut Ove Knausgaard are between those that come lower than her scrutiny. within the book's primary essay, she explores the intractable mind-body challenge and within the 3rd part, displays at the mysteries of anxiety, synesthesia, reminiscence, belief, and the philosophy of Søren Kierkegaard. With readability, wit, and keenness, she exposes gender bias, upends bought rules, and demanding situations her reader to imagine again.
