El País reviews A Woman Looking at Men Looking at Women
Carles Geli reviews Siri Hustvedt's latest book for Spanish newspaper El País.
"Neuroscientists have long sought the genetic and biochemical causes of suicide. Is it an advance or a setback? The writer Siri Hustvedt is not clear either. To give a lecture on the subject (s)he spent a year and a half "and I read absolutely everything on the subject," (s)he says stretching (her) arms as lean as the body and eyes closed. And it is true: one only has to look at the result in the book The Woman Who Looks at Men Who Look at Women (Seix Barral, Edicions 62, in Catalan), compilation of their essays and talks on the feminist, science. There are more than 400 pages that fit from the artistic differences on sex between Mapplethorpe and Almodóvar to Kierkegaard and the truths of fiction."
