Recensioner i media
'An intellectual, emotional and elegantly written collection that leaves the reader with plenty to ponder...Her passion for language and literature makes the prose leap from the page...Hustvedt is, quite simply, an extraordinary literary talent. Read it, ponder it, then go read it again.' * Image * 'A luminous collection of mind-expanding pieces on literary and philosophical themes...A book to renew one's faith in the literary essay' * Robert McCrum, Observer * 'Thoughtful, sensuous essays...her enthusiasms are oddly infectious' * <i> Daily Telegraph </i> * 'She strides across these pages: a 6ft tall Amazonian New Yorker...by whom we are at once riveted and faintly disconcerted...Hustvedt is a lucid writer, whose spare, elegant prose wears lightly its eclectic reference points.' * <i> Observer </i> *
