Lit Up: Siri Hustvedt on women in art, eroticism, and the mind-body problem
Angela Ledgerwood hosts Lit Up, "A podcast about books, writers and all things literary where no topic is off the table and no conversation is too weird, too personal or too controversial."
"For many years I’ve read Siri Hustvedt’s work and marveled at her intelligence. The breadth of her knowledge - of the sciences, arts and literature - is mind boggling. Now, she shares another example of her genius with the world; a compelling and radical collection of essays on art, feminism, neuroscience, psychology, and philosophy called, A Woman Looking at Men Looking at Women: Essays on Art, Sex, and the Mind. Speaking with Siri was such a privilege. Our convo ranges from the artwork of Louise Bourgeois, why she took so long to begin psychoanalysis, and the challenges of the female artist."
