    Shelves: ekphrasis , favourites , contemporary , s-release I never learn. This book had been knocking around the house for a while, but I hadn't really been interested in reading it, due to a combination of factors but primarily because a the cover didn't interest me and b one of the most prominent quotes on the jacket describes it as 'a love story'. So it was for no particu I never learn. So it was for no particular reason - out of boredom, really - that I eventually picked this up. It is a love story, but to describe it that way is to do it a huge disservice - there are at least four love stories in here, and one of them is a friendship. And it's just as much a book about art and how we perceive it , madness, parenthood, loss and grief, truth and lies. It follows the lifelong friendship between Leo, a writer and the narrator of this story , and Bill, an artist, and their relationships with their wives Erica and Lucille, and later Violet and children Matthew and Mark. Later, the story becomes focused around devastating loss and its aftermath, and still later it concentrates on the teenage Mark, his disturbing behaviour and dangerous association with a controversial artist, Teddy Giles. The narrative is filled with evocative descriptions of Bill's artwork, Leo's divergences into the significance of art and personal interpretation, the characters' fascinating, meandering conversations; there is much more to it than simply the plot itself, complex and intriguing though that is in its own right. I don't really know what to say about What I Loved to effectively express how I felt about it. Although what happens is interesting, it's the quality of the writing that really makes it what it is. Hustvedt brilliantly relates a whole spectrum of emotions and makes you feel and suffer along with her characters. The atmosphere is fantastic, with a thread of suspense running throughout the novel, which intensifies in the last few chapters as the plot builds to a dramatic climax. The Teddy Giles character became so menacing to me that I felt genuinely frightened and couldn't get to sleep after the final revelations.
