The Shaking Woman or a History of My Nerves

Jill Anderson, August 4, 2012

Author Siri Hustvedt is seized with a shaking fit that may or may not be neurological and may or may not be related to grief over her father's death.

An insightful read that, like much of Hustvedt's nonfiction, complements her novels.
