    With The Blazing World, internationally best­selling author Siri Hustvedt returns to the New York art world in her most masterful and urgent novel since What I Loved. Hustvedt, who has long been celebrated for her “beguiling, lyrical prose” ( The Sunday Times Books, London), tells the provocative story of the artist Harriet Burden. After years of watching her work ignored or dismissed by critics, Burden conducts an experiment she calls Maskings: She presents her own art behind three male masks, concealing her female identity.

She believes passionately that art and science are too often kept separate and that conversations across disciplines are vital to increasing our knowledge of the human mind and body, how they connect and how we think, feel and see.

    Harriet Burden ist die Frau eines einflussreichen New Yorker Galeristen. Nach dessen vorzeitigem Tod beginnt sie ein heimliches Experiment: eine Karriere als Installationskünstlerin, die sich hinter dem angeblichen Werk dreier männlicher "Masken" verbirgt, das in Wahrheit sie selbst erschaffen hat. Doch der Faustische Handel schlägt fehl - einer dieser Maskenmänner, selbst ein bekannter Künstler, durchkreuzt ihr Rollenspiel und setzt sein eigenes dagegen. Es kommt zum Kampf zweier widerstreitender großer Geister - einem Kampf auf Leben und Tod.
