About the Author:

Knut Hamsun was born in 1859 in Norway and after a period of travel he published his first successful novel, Hunger, in 1890. It became a sensation and as Isaac Bashevis Singer commented "the whole modern school of fiction in the twentieth century stems from Hamsun." He was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1920 and died in 1952.
