13 in stock


Tuesdays, February 11-March 17, 2020
6:30-8:30 p.m. (six sessions)
Guide: Ivonne Saed

In this Delve, we will read two of Hustvedt’s novels, The Blindfold and What I Loved, along with some of her essays.This combination will allow us to connect her theoretical ideas on art and the act of seeing with her fictional work. Winner of the 2019 Princesa de Asturias Award for Literature, Siri Hustvedt has an especially acute way of looking at the world around her. The attentive observation in her narrative allows her to develop complex characters and relations, creating an intimacy both between them and with the reader that makes them more vivid and endearing.
