Siri Hustvedt is a highly unusual writer—an internationally acclaimed and bestselling novelist and an intellectual with voracious interests. Siri is as well-respected in literary circles for her bestselling novels (including The Sorrows of an American and What I Loved), as she is in the artistic community for her lectures at museums around the world and her book of essays on visual art (Mysteries of the Rectangle), and by neuroscientists for her interdisciplinary memoir The Shaking Woman or A History of My Nerves and her delivery of the thirty-ninth annual Freud lecture in Vienna in 2011. Her most recent book is a collection of essays: Living, Thinking, Looking. Stories from the 5x15 in New York, recorded at the Player's Club in Gramercy Park. 5x15 brings together five outstanding individuals to tell of their lives, passions and inspirations. There are only two rules - no scripts and only 15 minutes each. Learn more about 5x15 events: Twitter: Facebook: Instagram:
