3 Responses to The Shaking Woman or A History of My Nerves by Siri Hustvedt

  1. I was fascinated by this book. Hustvedt is such an erudite guide, wonderfully articulate in her explications of what she finds in her of neurological studies.The brain is an astonishing organ which can fool you into all sorts of things and find ways around physical problems, too. I have MS, luckily comparatively mild, and so am used to my brain playing tricks resulting in physical effects which very often disappear and some times reappear.

      Yes, the brain is quite a fascinating thing. I’m sorry to hear about your MS (though glad it is, at least, mild) but sometimes these experiences open up a way of understanding the world that isn’t otherwise acknowledged. Which makes it a fascinating and varied and unpredictable place.
