Knausgård writes like a woman

Join Siri Hustvedt on September 1, 2017, for a lecture on gender, writing and literature, in Bergen, Norway.
"When Siri Hustvedt interviewed Karl Ove Knausgård on his first United States tour in 2012, she ended the quest to ask him why he only mentions one female author among the many literary references in his books. He responded briefly: No competition. The answer has haunted Hustvedt afterwards, and has been the starting point for a much-discussed essay in her latest book, A Woman Looking at Men Looking at Women. Hustvedt investigates what Knausgård may have meant and how gender plays a role in the status and reception of the writing."
