"What I Loved" by Siri Hustvedt

Wednesday, January 17, 2024, 6 p.m.

What I Loved is the tale of two families that meet by chance when Leo buys a painting by Bill, and they and their wives eventually become friends and neighbors. Both women become pregnant around the same time and their quiet domestic life is the subject of the first part of the book. However, tragedy strikes and relationships are torn asunder, at which point the gentle book begins to take on the mood of a thriller.

Siri Hustvedt is the daughter of a professor of Norwegian-American history. She first became interested in writing at the age of 13 after reading several classics on a family trip to Europe, and has written works of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and translates other works from Norwegian into English.
