05/09/2014 Karl Ove Knausgaard
19:00 Author Talk / Signing
Venue details: Saint George's Church, Bloomsbury Way, Bloomsbury, London, WC1A 2SR
Events details: Karl Ove Knausgaard’s six autobiographical novels, published in Norway between 2009 and 2011 under the series title Min Kamp (‘My Struggle’) have excited controversy and critical acclaim in equal measure. Knausgaard’s unflinching and almost uncritical laying on of detail has led some critics to call him ‘the Norwegian Proust’. ‘There is something ceaselessly compelling about Knausgaard’s book’, wrote James Wood in the New Yorker. ‘Even when I was bored, I was interested.’ Karl Ove Knausgaard will be reading from and talking about his work at a unique event hosted by the London Review Bookshop at Saint George’s Church, Bloomsbury.
