FROM THE INTERNATIONALLY BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF WHAT I LOVED'An astoundingly joyful read . . . a book that shines with intellectual curiosity and emotional integrity' Guardian'By turns funny, moving and erudite, playfully reminding us of a contemporary Jane Austen' Daily MailAfter Mia Fredricksen's husband of thirty years asks for a pause - so he can indulge his infatuation with a young French colleague - she cracks up (briefly), rages (deeply), then decamps to her prairie childhood home.There, gradually, she is drawn into the lives of those around her: her mother's circle of feisty widows; the young woman next door; and the diabolical teenage girls in her poetry class. By the end of the summer without men, Mia knows what's worth fighting for - and on whose terms. Provocative, mordant, and fiercely intelligent, this is a gloriously vivacious tragi-comedy about women and girls, love and marriage, and the age-old war between the sexes.A rich and intelligent meditation on female identity, written in beguiling lyrical prose . . . heady and intoxicating' Sunday TimesPRAISE FOR SIRI HUSTVEDT:'Hustvedt is that rare artist, a writer of high intelligence, profound sensuality and a less easily definable capacity for which the only word I can find is wisdom' Salman Rushdie'One of our finest novelists' Oliver Sacks'Reading a Hustvedt novel is like consuming the best of David Lynch' Financial Times'Few contemporary writers are as satisfying and stimulating to read as Siri Hustvedt' Washington Post

Praise for THE SORROWS OF AN AMERICAN . It is a rare writer who can both rouse the mind and grip the heart, and all the while provide the sensuous delights of image and language Lisa Appignanesi, Independent Beautifully thought through, deeply serious and enormously intelligent Jane Smiley, Guardian THE SORROWS OF AN AMERICAN feels like a very personal story and is all the more intimate for it...her skill lies in convincing the reader that we have seen right inside someone's soul Viv Groskop, Observer Richly textured...full of emotional as well as intellectual intensity Katie Owen, Sunday Telegraph For all its cerebral riches, this novel is composed with superb artistry, Hustvedt handles the numerous interlocking narratives with immense skill... It is proof of Hustvedt's talent that the terrors of this novel feel real John de Falbe, Literary Review This satisfying and emotionally rich follow-up to Ms Hustvedt's acclaimed WHAT I LOVED treads some similar themes: love and loss; the limits of perception; the drama of dreams; and the need to craft coherent stories from the unreliable fragments of memory. As with her previous novel, Ms Hustvedt's cerebral characters are tenderly drawn, wise and realistic ... a beautifully sincere examination of the grim traps of over-active minds Economist
