Availability: Not available to order from this website, please try another retailer

A collection of stories from the Nobel Prize-winning author.

Twenty stories ranging over every imaginable human emotion and situation, Tales of Love and Loss is a treat for all lovers of great writing. Knut Hamsun published only three collections of short stories during his lifetime and abandoned the form entirely after 1906.

Most of these stories are translated into English for the first time and this is the first publication for them outside Norway. Providing a fascinating commentary on the novels Hamsun was writing at the time and with forebodings of his much later work these stories are indispensable.
