What I Loved | Siri Hustvedt
post image

Last year I read a wonderful book that explored grief. It was profound, shocking and sad. It lingers with me still. Recently the BBC World Book Club read it and the author was interviewed. They contacted me about submitting a question to the author! I did, and you can hear me here: (My question is posed at about the 8:10 mark of the video.)

To this point I have failed to read Henry James. And so far this book is fascinating... but I am not sure how well I would have liked James ifToibin has his character right. #1001Books #Reading1001

Liz_M This book is much better than any written by James, imo. 😁 Even with a final chapter that was so annoying that I knocked off a star. 6mo
