    This story of a Norwegian artist who wanders the street, struggling on the edge of starvation is one of the most disturbing novels in existence. As hunger overtakes him, the artist slides inexorably into paranoia and despair. This descent into madness is recounted by the unnamed narrator in increasingly urgent and disjointed prose, as he loses his grip on reality. Knut Hamsun was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1920. 272p.

    In a Norwegian coastal town, society’s carefully woven threads begin to unravel when an unsettling stranger named Johan Nagel arrives. With an often brutal insight into human nature, Nagel draws out the townsfolk, exposing their darkest instincts and suppressed desires. At once arrogant and unassuming, righteous and depraved, Nagel seduces the entire community even as he turns it on its head—before disappearing as suddenly as he arrived.
