At the End of the Struggle
In 2012 Karl Ove Knausgaard spoke in the Book Festival’s smallest venue about the first of his autobiographical My Struggle novels. He’s now widely regarded as one of the world’s finest living writers. Today we welcome him back as a Festival headliner to launch the English translation of the final book in the series, The End, which culminates with the phrase, ‘I am no longer a writer’.
