In this trilogy of works accumulated in one quantity, Hustvedt brings a feminist, interdisciplinary point of view to a number of topics. Louise Bourgeois, Pablo Picasso, Susan Sontag and Knut Ove Knausgaard are between those that come below her scrutiny. within the book's valuable essay, she explores the intractable mind-body challenge and within the 3rd part, displays at the mysteries of tension, synesthesia, reminiscence, belief, and the philosophy of Søren Kierkegaard. With readability, wit, and fervour, she exposes gender bias, upends obtained principles, and demanding situations her reader to imagine again.
