In Conversation with Karl Ove Knausgård

Siri Agrell is a Toronto-based writer and communications strategist. She served as Deputy Director of Communications to Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne after working for more than a decade as a reporter for publications like The Globe and Mail, National Post and Ottawa Citizen. She is the co-founder of TypeFace, a literary portrait project that benefits the Toronto Public Library Foundation. Her first book, Bad Bridesmaid, was published in 2007.

Sheila Heti is the author of the critically acclaimed short story collection, The Middle Stories, which was published in Germany, France, the Netherlands, the United States, and Spain.

Karl Ove Knausgård’s novel Out of the World was the first-ever debut to win the Norwegian Critics Prize for Literature. He is the author of the breathtaking My Struggle cycle, which includes six novels that can be read independently or as one hugely ambitious project. Knausgård presents the third installment of the My Struggle cycle, Boyhood Island, an autobiographical story of family, memory and how we never become quite what we set out to be.
