MOTHERS, FATHERS, AND OTHERS - NEW ESSAYS

À propos

Feminist philosophy meets family memoir in a fresh essay collection by Siri Hustvedt, author of the bestselling What I Loved and Booker Prize-longlisted The Blazing World. ''A wonderful essayist . . . Her new collection is replete with personal history and recollection, and sparkles with small descriptive gems.'' Martin Chilton, Independent Siri Hustvedt''s relentlessly curious mind and expansive intellect are on full display in this stunning new collection of essays, whose subjects range from the nature of memory and time to what we inherit from our parents, the power of art during tragedy, misogyny, motherhood, neuroscience, and the books we turn to during a pandemic. Drawing on family history as well as her own life and experiences, she examines the porousness of borders of all kinds in a masterful intellectual journey that is at once personal and universal. Ultimately, Mothers, Fathers, and Others reminds us that the boundaries we take for granted-between ourselves and others, between art and viewer-are far less stable than we imagine.
