Barcelona is this year's "City of Literature / Ciutat de la Literatura." Siri Hustvedt will attend this and a series of events in Spain during the month of April.
Her latest book, A Woman Looking at Men Looking at Women, brings together her uniquely nuanced, knowledgeable, and sophisticated approach to interdisciplinary readings of science, art, and the humanities.
A Woman Looking at Men Looking at Women: Essays on Art, Sex, and the Mind was longlisted for the 2017 PEN/Diamonstein-Spielvogel Award for the Art of the Essay.
