Siri Hustvedt has published works of fiction, essays, poetry and academic articles. Her work is underpinned by feminism, art, and science.
She has written numerous books, notably: “A Woman Looking at Men Looking at Women: Essays on Art, Sex, and the Mind,” “The Shaking Woman or a History of My Nerves,” and “What I Loved.”
In 2019, she was recognized with Spain’s Princess of Asturias Award for Literature. Acknowledgement of her talent—erudite, curious, and feminist— is overdue having been overshadowed by her successful husband, Paul Auster. Few writers have managed to reach into the secrets of the mind with their stories as successfully as Siri Hustdvedt.
