Siri Hustvedt’s eagerly anticipated new novel gives us the character Harriet Burden, an overlooked female artist who disguises her work behind three male identities, and whose strategy fails when one of her actor artists claims the work as his own. The Blazing World is an intricately conceived puzzle exploring the deceptive powers of prejudice, money, fame, and desire. In conversation with the artist Margaret Bowland.
