First published in 1890, this is a new edition of the major modernist novel from the Nobel prize winner. A compelling trip into the mind of a young writer driven by starvation to the extremes of madness and despair. Thomas Mann, Ernest Hemingway, Samuel Beckett and James Kelman are just some of the writers obviously influenced by and indebted to Hamsun.
