Siri Hustvedt talks to Razia Iqbal

Mothers, Fathers and Others

Winter Weekend 2021, 

The author’s expansive intellect is evident in this stunning 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 and her own experiences, she examines the boundaries we take for granted – between ourselves and others, between art and viewer –are far less stable than we imagine.
