Siri Hustvedt: Taken Over

Alexandra Schwartzbrod and Siri Hustvedt discuss topics from neuroscience to the Women's March on Washington, in an interview for French daily newspaper Liberation.

"Does she think she has a role to play as a woman and as an intellectual? "Yes, writing about the Trump period, and giving money to the Democrats. People are full of energy, and this energy is on the side of the Democrats." She is convinced that Hillary Clinton lost because she was a woman and ambitious: "People do not like women with ambitions displayed, but you can not run for such an election without being ambitious!" and she blames that part of the left that did not vote for her.
