Karl Ove Knausgård’s My Struggle has been widely celebrated, and the English speaking world is now awaiting the translation of the sixth and final volume, itself more than a thousand pages long. Drawing on the original Norwegian, Professor Martin Hägglund presents a reading of My Struggle as a whole, pursuing the existential stakes, philosophical implications, and transformative quality of Knausgård’s project.
Our Pelin Kivrak has won a national fiction award in Turkey with her first book manuscript. The 2017 Yaşar Nabi Nayır Short Story Award is annually given to an unpublished book by a young writer.
