'living, Thinking, Looking,' By Siri Hustvedt

'Living, Thinking, Looking,' by Siri Hustvedt
Drawing on everything from her own experience of writing fiction and her struggles with insomnia and migraines to neuroscience, psychoanalytic theory and visual art, Hustvedt argues for the dynamic interconnections of memory and imagination.
In one of the book's strongest pieces, "Three Emotional Stories," she deploys Augustine, William James, a scientific paper on bilateral hippocampal lesions and much more to explore the nature of memory and how it's transmuted in artistic creation.
