Event Details

​​Join us for an evening with award-winning Norwegian author Karl Ove Knausgaard.

Almost ten years ago Knausgaard embarked on a huge project: a first person narrative about his life. My Struggle ran to six volumes and became a literary sensation in his native Norway, selling an unprecedented half a million copies in a nation of 5 million.

These deeply exposing books have been heralded as some of the finest works of a generation, admired by writers including Jeffrey Eugenides and Rachel Cusk (Zadie Smith has described needing them “like crack”) and earning comparisons to Proust.

As the eagerly awaited final book is published in English for the first time, he will look back on this extraordinary literary achievement.

Tickets are £20 or £33 including a copy of The End. There will be a book signing after the talk.

Running time: 90 minutes, no interval.

Wheelchair users and visitors who require an assistant may bring a companion free of charge. To book a free companion ticket please email
