The Sorrows of an American, by Siri Hustvedt, first edition cover

The Sorrows of an American (novel) (2008) by Siri Hustvedt.  This very good novel, Siri Hustvedt’s (The Blindfold (1992), What I Loved (2003)) fourth, as distinctly post-modern and intellectually accomplished as it may be, looks with warmth and tenderness on the struggles of thoughtful, sometimes lost, men and women, families, generations, neighbors, artists, the lost and the found and offers, not a solution to their, and our own, problems but an admirable, and sensitive, sense of belonging. (PR)

A new novel, The Summer Without Men, was published in April 2011.

We recommend that you buy your books.  Have a wonderful personal library..
