I have just started reading Siri Hustvedt’s ‘What I loved’. I’m a Hustvedt virgin and know nothing about this author, except the fact that she is married to literary god Paul Auster (do we need to know anything more?).
I’ve read the first 3 pages and already I’m hooked. So far, I can say without a doubt that this book is a masterpiece and it brings home the fact that I am really really really not enjoying Atwood’s ‘The Year of the Flood’ (boohoo).
For those of you interesting in reading this text, here are some links for you to follow:
