“Hunger” is regarded as one of the major modernist novels, anticipating and influencing much fiction that was to follow, from Joyce to Kafka to Camus and Kelman. Set in Oslo, “Hunger” is a compelling journey into the mind of a young writer who is driven by starvation to constantly fluctuating extremes of euphoria and despair. It is a study of the psychological hinterlands – to the very edges of experience – where few writers have the courage to tread.
