What I Have Loved - Siri Hustvedt

Benjamin Markovits neatly summarises Hustvedt’s novel that addresses the tension between people who embody familial roles while having chosen to reject other roles imposed by society: “What I Loved deals in the lives of critics, painters, academics, writers: people who possess what has been called the leisure of the theory classes. It’s also a book about a couple of couples who together have children, grow old and become unhappy. The worries about art and about life inevitably overlap, and Hustvedt asks two simple and serious questions: can art help us to understand our lives? And can it change them for the better?” Suscribe to the London Review of Books and read the full article here: http://bit.ly/2kvAZyA
