    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.

    Originally published in 1890, this classic of modern literature follows an impoverished Norwegian writer through the streets of Chrisiania (now Oslo) 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.
