Siri Hustvedt wins 2012 Gabarron International Award for Thought and Humanities
From The Gabarron:
“For her tireless investigative work, that has allowed her to integrate with a single voice and highly original ideas of philosophy, neuroscience, psychology or psychoanalysis in her literary, creative and documentary work. The Jury has also wanted to underscore her contribution to the understanding and discovery of Fine Arts, through her many essays and articles.”
The members of the jury have awarded the prize to the American novelist, poet and essayist, after having reviewed the 17 candidates from Argentina, Spain, the United States, France, India, England, Italy and Mexico.
