Born in 1859, Knut Hamsun published a stunning series of novels in the 1890s - Hunger (1890), Mysteries (1892) and Pan (1894). He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1920 for Growth of the Soil.


'Knut Hamsun's writing is magical, his sentences are glowing, he could write about anything and make it alive.' - Karl Ove Knausgaard

'the inventor of a certain kind of modern fictionality. Hamsun's development of the stream of consciousness becomes particularly beautiful, and extremely comic...Mysteries is as great as Hunger.' - James Wood

'Hamsun has the qualities that belong to the very great, the completest omniscience about human nature.' - Rebecca West
