For some reason I did not get as much from these essays as from some of her other work. Still, Siri Hustvedt's mind is a brilliant one, her style smooth and her logic both objective and personal.
Quotes:
*responsive presence of another (what we crave for)"..."I have heard you and I'm coming with my answer."
"Don't do anything you don't really want to do,"ma mother said...
"reading is an embodied act"
"For me, a work of art must be an enigma. It must push me into a position of unknowing or else I find myself bored by my own comprehension." ( )

Clever but cold and kind of boring. She makes her point, she reads a lot of books.
"Happy Orthodontics" was the best part. ( )
