The Morning Star: Karl Ove Knausgaard
Originally aired on October 23
Re-release November 30
Described as “one of the 21st century’s greatest literary sensations” by The Wall Street Journal, award-winning author Karl Ove Knausgaard will present his latest novel, The Morning Star (translated to English by Martin Aitken). Set in southern Norway, a huge star suddenly appears, blazing in the sky and bringing with it a series of inexplicable events and a common sense of foreboding. As the novel unfolds, Knausgaard adeptly traverses life in all its mundanity and drama, from the strangeness that permeates our world, to what happens when forces beyond our comprehension are unleashed. This conversation with the Norwegian author of the renowned My Struggle series is not to be missed.
