Book recommendations from Karl Ove Knausgaard

1 copy 3

The author of the singular six-volume autobiographical novel "My Struggle" was interviewed for the "By the Book" feature in the Sunday, August 19 New York Times Book Review.

In the course of the interview he named a zillion of his favorite authors and books, very few of whom I'd ever heard of, so many I took screenshots of the interview and then mashed them all into one page (above) for my future reference.

You can too!

If his taste is anywhere near as fine as his work, we're in for months of good reading.
