Hunger

By (author) Knut Hamsun; Introduction by Jo Nesbo; Afterword by Paul Auster; Translated by Sverre Lyngstad

Hunger is the 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 – the very edges of experience – where few writers have courage to tread.

Reviews of Hunger

'Disturbing and difficult as this nightmarish novel is, it is a work of imaginative brilliance that resonates in our own day.' – Herald
