    DescriptionHunger is the compelling journey into the mind of a young writer who is driven by starvation to constantly fluctuating extremes of euphoria and despair. It is a study of the psychological hinterlands - the very edges of experience - where few writers have courage to tread.

    Author Information
    Knut Hamsun was born in Norway in 1859. Hunger was his first novel and was published to great acclaim in 1890. He went on to write thirty novels and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1920, but his later work never matched the dazzling originality of his earlier novels. He died in 1953.
    Review quote
    'Disturbing and difficult as this nightmarish novel is, it is a work of imaginative brilliance that resonates in our own day.' - Herald
