Product Description:

Hunger is the crux of Hamsuns claims to mastery. This is the classic novel of humiliation, even beyond Dostoevsky. -- Observer"Hunger was published in 1890 and its power has not faded." -- London Review Of Books"One of the most disturbing novels in existence" -- Time Out --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. First published in 1890, this is a new edition of the major modernist novel from the Nobel prize winner. A compelling trip into the mind of a young writer driven by starvation to the extremes of madness and despair. Thomas Mann, Ernest Hemingway, Samuel Beckett and James Kelman are just some of the writers obviously influenced by and indebted to Hamsun.
