An Evening with Karl Ove Knausgaard

Knausgaard will introduce readings by acclaimed actors of stories he admires and an excerpt from My Struggle Book IV, which is published in the U.S. on May 5 by Archipelago Books.

"Every detail is put down without apparent vanity or decoration, as if the writing and the living are happening simultaneously. There shouldn't be anything remarkable about any of it except for the fact that it immerses you totally. You live his life with him. . ." - Zadie Smith, New York Review of Books

"No writer has emerged on the world stage to more acclaim in at least a decade ... readers of every stripe, it seems, are talking about Knausgaard." -- Evan Hughes, The New Yorker
