The front cover of the advanced reader s copy I hold in my hand depicts a woman dynamically in flight yet with an image of dismemberment as the title takes the place of the woman s trunk Hustvedt is no stranger to dismemberment both in fiction and in life If you peer into her history with novelist husband Paul Auster you will note that she has a stepson with a troubled past that features dismemberment although once removed In THE BLINDFOLD the main character Iris Siri spelled backwards examines the detritus of a murdered woman s life including a severed finger in a box In WHAT I LOVED Gile s art is centered on dismembered bodies In this novel dismemberment is often metaphorical such as the protagonist s separation from her sanity Mia is an educated woman with a PhD in comparative literature married to boorish Boris a neuroscientist She had a mental breakdown and spent time in the loony bin Now Boris wants a pause in their thirty year marriage so that he can have an affair with

was meager liftoff inside the pages Her inclusion of art poetry psychology and science a techniue she has used with impeccable agency in the past felt dispatched and rhetorical The Dear Reader was coy and distracting The structure was too much like a blog which made it candied instead of candid Hustvedt has been one of my favorite writers for several years I have been swept up in her ability to bend it like Beckett deliver like DeLillo and ruminate with the cerebral province and style In fact she avoided the pitfalls of stylistic prose until this novel It is aiming to be whimsical charming and mordant It comes off as pointedly uaint and capricious and doesn t read like the mature Hustvedt I am used to reading Regardless of the scholarly inclusions it seemed superficial It was lazy

The Summer Without Men characters ¼ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Read & Download ↠ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB â Siri Hustvedt Siri Hustvedt â 7 characters Die New Yorker Dichterin Mia hat eine Krise und verbringt den Sommer in der Nähe ihrer. When Mia s husband Boris asks for a pause from their 30 year marriage to go frolicking with a French coworker Mia ups and leaves for her home town to spend the summer there while trying to figure things out In my first Hustvedt novel I was charmed entertained and exposed to uite a lot of philosophy feminism and neuroscience It was a successful mix To occupy herself throughout the summer Mia teaches a poetry workshop for a handful of local girls She also visits her mother who lives in an apartment building for senior citizens and meets her mother s friends The descriptions of old age in this book is both raw and touching It was very well done and something that gives the book a dept and strength of narrative that makes it really good Mia also gets to know her next door neighbor a young mother struggling to care for a toddler Flora and a baby Simon while her husband is working And there we have it An all female cast of characters except baby Simon representing all ages from toddler to elderly Maleness is not completely absent though Boris is often on Mia s mind and there are a few other males circling the outskirts of the story When he first announced he wanted a pause she had a mental breakdown later she s filled with anger and criticism towards him and later still she seems to be thoughtful and uncertain about what she feels and wants Who are we really underneath the roles of mother wife crone And who do we want to be if we could throw away those roles This book is about identity and going through different phases of life than just bashing away at male dominance although feminism is also an important theme throughout In fact Hustvedt s analysis of injustice has a humor colorfulness and preciseness to it that reminded me a lot of Margaret AtwoodHustvedt doesn t tell a strictly chronological story She jumps back and forth uite a lot We get to see glimpses of Mia s everyday life babysitting teaching visiting her mother interspersed with paragraphs or sometimes pages of gender theory a bit of neuroscience history and some of Mia s memories She is trying to find herself anew To find the pre Boris Mia and to figure out if she wants him back or if she is happier without him What I found the most fascinating about this book is that it tells a small handful of stories we ve all heard before Clich s The teenagers that scheme and bully The young mother struggling alone with her kids while her husband is working The deceived middle aged wife But clich s are clich s for a reason they do happen very often And to the people they happen to it s a very personal and uniue and painful experience Hustvedt manages through Mia to convey both the individual experience and to see the bigger pattern She sees the pain of the individual that goes through it for the first time and the cultural structures that ensures that this happens to so many people over and over again And her observations are always insightful
