Karl Ove Knausgaard

Saturday 24 May

Discover a breathtaking cycle of work billed as the greatest literary sensation in Norway in decades. The six novels of the My Struggle series can be read independently or as one hugely ambitious project. 

Karl Ove Knausgaard’s books have spurred a heated debate about the use of autobiographical elements in fiction. In addition to amazing reviews and several awards, his literary experiment has generated enormous interest amongst journalists, critics and readers alike. 

Now the series of books is being translated and the debate continues. Hear him discuss his controversial, yet highly successful third book of the My Struggle series, Boyhood Island, and find out more about its fascinating characters. The event will be followed by a book signing. 

Event runs: c. 75 mins (plus interval)
