Look, Listen & Learn


Norwegian literary phenomenon Karl Ove Knausgård leapt to notice with his arresting cycle of six autobiographical novels My Struggle (Min Kamp), described by The Paris Review as “extreme in its candor, by turns earnest and satiric, attentive to the minutiae of postmodern family life”. His latest works are a contemplative four-volume series named after the seasons and inspired by the birth of his daughter, and Home and Away: Writing the Beautiful Game co-written with Fredrik Ekelund, about football and more. Knausgård is also an informed speaker on Edvard Munch and Dante and the author of A Time for Everything. The book world’s man of the moment joins Paula Morris in conversation.
