I was introduced to Hustvedt through her nonfiction book, "The Shaking Woman or A history of my Nerves." Because she was attempting to find a diagnosis for her condition, her writing was analytical and focused on medical, psychiatric and scientific disciplines that might help explain her shaking. When I picked up this fictional novel, I was not expecting the level of creativity or the brilliant writing that characterizes this piece of fiction. The author's insights into the evolutionary nature of a woman's relationship to other women throughout her lifetime make this book thought-provoking. The protagonist is a fascinating, wonderful woman. I highly recommend this novel.

If you are looking for a different read, this might be the one. I have enjoyed the poetic way in which she writes and like the way she is viewing generations of women - from the young girl next door, the stay at home mom, the daughter, and her elderly mother and friends at the nursing home. I am looking at her other works and plan on reading them. A refreshing change from the generic and predictable.
