Knut Hamsun Book and Novel

Knut Hamsun - Author


Knut Hamsun was born in Norway in 1859. Hunger was his first novel and was published to great acclaim in 1890. He went on to write thirty novels and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1920, but his later work never matched the dazzling originality of his earlier novels. He died in 1953.

If you like Knut Hamsun you might also like to read books by Albert Camus, James Kelman and Franz Kafka.
