What I loved by Siri Hustvedt Published by Sceptre ISBN: 0340682388 This is another of my Bookcrossing finds and once again it was a combination of the picture on the front cover but combined this time with the author s name which I rather naively thought sounded a bit Indian but I have since discovered she isn t.

One of my standout reads of all time is "What I Loved" by this author, Siri Hustvedt; a clever book that was extremely well written and one that I enjoyed immensely. Her new novel, "The Sorrows of an American" was similarly billed as a spectacular read and I had high expectations that it would be an equally impressive book. ~~ Story Synopsis: ~~ Beginning with the death of his father Lars, Erik Davidsen unearths a secret that his father held for years - a promise that he had made to a woman called Lisa.
