Description:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Something new is happening here, some new thought about the nature of art is being proposed inHunger. An art that is indistinguishable from the life of the artist who makes it . . . an art that is the direct expression of the effort to express itself." --Paul Auster (from his introduction) "The whole modern school of fiction in the twentieth century stems from Hamsun. They were all Hansun's disciples: Thomas Mann and Arthur Schnitzler . . . and even such American writers as Fitzgerald and Hemingway." --Isaac Bashevis Singer "After readingHunger, one can easily understand why Hamsun was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.Hungershould appeal to any reader who is interested in a masterpiece by one of this century's great novelists." --James Goldwasser,Detroit News.

Synopsis: Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature.

Originally published in 1890, this classic of modern literature follows an impoverished Norwegian writer through the streets of Christiania (now Olso) as he struggles on the edge of starvation. Existing on what little money he makes from selling the occasional article to the local paper, and down to pawning the clothes on his back, the young writer slowly loses control of his reason and begins to slip increasingly into bouts of madness, paranoia, and despair.

A gripping portrait of an artist struggling for integrity, Hunger mirrors the dire straits of Hamsun's own life when he brought this, his then incomplete first novel, to a publisher in 1888.

About the Author: Knut Hamsun (1859-1952) was a Norwegian novelist, poet, and playwright. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1920. His other works include Pan, Women at the Pump, and Mysteries.
