Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What I Loved begins in New York in 1975, when art historian Leo Hertzberg discovers an extraordinary painting by an unknown artist in a SoHo gallery. He buys the work; tracks down the artist, Bill Wechsler; and the two men embark on a life-long friendship. Leo's story, which spans twenty-five years, follows the growing involvement between his family and Bill's--an intricate constellation of attachments that includes the two men, their wives, Erica and Violet, and their sons, Matthew and Mark.

The families live in the same New York apartment building, rent a house together in the summers and keep up a lively exchange of ideas about life and art, but the bonds between them are tested, first by sudden tragedy, and then by a monstrous duplicity that slowly comes to the surface. A beautifully written novel that combines the intimacy of a family saga with the suspense of a thriller, What I Loved is a deeply moving story about art, love, loss, and betrayal.

Synopsis:

Set in the hedonistic 80s, this novel combines a moving account of familial relationships with a plot of mounting menace. Leo Hertzberg's son drowns when he is 12 and Bill Weschler's son grows up to be the acolyte of a sinister, guru-like artist who spawns murder in his wake.

Alisha C, September 18, 2011 (view all comments by Alisha C)
Hustvedt successfully writes a novel from the perspective of a man. A brilliant novel that outlines his lifetime and relationships with those closest to him. Her descriptions of the art in the novel are so rich, I only wish I could see them in real life. Her best novel by far.
