Karl Ove Knausgård’s My Struggle

Karl Ove Knausgård’s My Struggle (volume 1) is a great book. It reads beautifully on its own, but it is also the first volume in an extraordinary 6 volume series. I am delighted to see that this great Norwegian novel has been published in the US by Archipelago books.  Click here for Archipelago’s presentation. See also Archipelago’s link to James Wood recent review in The New Yorker. (In Norwegian I wrote an essay on the series after the publication of volume 6.)

I am delighted to be giving a paper and participating at Aschehoug’s summer seminar for their writers in Oslo on June 21. I am looking forward, very much, to learning more about the interests and concerns of  writers and publishers in Norway today.
