Siri Hustvedt: Memories of the Future

Siri Hustvedt: Memories of the Future

In Siri Hustvedt’s most recent novel, Memories of the Future, a character comments ‘I am writing not only to tell. I am writing to discover.’ It’s a phrase that encapsulates Hustvedt’s approach to her work- ever curious, ever challenging. In a special live link-up from New York, she discusses fiction, memory, the condescension of men towards women as explored in Memories of the Future, and of how a woman might live well in today’s world.

Siri Hustvedt is the author of poetry, essays and non-fiction, and her novels including the international bestsellers What I Loved and The Summer Without Men. The Blazing World won the 2014 Los Angeles Book Prize for fiction. In 2012 she was awarded the International Gabarron Prize for Thought and Humanities. She is a lecturer in psychiatry at Weil Cornell Medical College in New York. Her work has been translated into over thirty languages.

"Few contemporary writers are as satisfying and stimulating to read as Siri Hustvedt. Her sentences dance with the elation of a brilliant intellect romping through a playground of ideas, and her prose is just as lively when engaged in the development of characters and story" - Washington Post.

"Reading a Hustvedt novel is like consuming the best of David Lynch on repeat" - Financial Times.
