Den skakande kvinnan eller En historia om mina nerver

The Shaking Woman or A History of My Nerves
Bok av Siri Hustvedt
In this unique neurological memoir, Siri Hustvedt attempts to solve her own mysterious condition While speaking at a memorial event for her father in 2006, Siri Hustvedt suffered a violent seizure from the neck down. Despite her flapping arms and shaking legs, she continued to speak clearly and was able to finish her speech. It was as if she had suddenly become two people: a calm orator and a shuddering wreck. Then the seizures happened again and again. "The Shaking Woman" tracks Hustvedt's search for a diagnosis, one that takes her inside the thought processes of several scientific disciplines, each one of which offers a distinct perspective on her paroxysms but no ready solution. Ultimately, her quest to understand her own mysterious troubles becomes "a brilliant illumination for us all" (George Makari, author of "Revolution in Mind").
