Genre: Event with live subtitles
Published in English to date as A Death in the Family, A Man in Love, Boyhood Island, Dancing in the Dark, and Some Rain Must Fall, Knausgaard combines searing personal honesty about the details of daily life with a mesmerising intensity and precision of language. With Zadie Smith declaring ‘It's unbelievable... It's completely blown my mind' and Jeffrey Eugenides stating Knausgaard ‘broke the sound barrier of the autobiographical novel’, few writers have had a more seismic impact on the state of literature today.
Knausgaard is in conversation with Ted Hodgkinson, Southbank Centre’s Senior Programmer for Literature and Spoken Word, about capturing reality on the page, and also offers an insight into the final volume of his celebrated series.
