Norwegian author Gunnhild Řyehaug, in conversation with fellow author Alexandra Kleeman, discusses Knots, her English-language debut. First published in Norway in 2004, Knots is Řyehaug’s radical collection of short stories that range from the surreal to the oddly mundane, and prod the discomforts of mental, sexual, and familial bonds.

Cleverly balancing the sensuous, the surreal, and the comical, Řyehaug achieves a playful familiarity with the absurd that never overreaches the needs of her stories. Full of characters who can’t help tying knots in themselves and each other, these tales make the world just a little more strange, and introduce a major international voice of searing vision, grace, and humor.

Following the discussion, copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing.
