Current Reading: Hunger by Knut Hamsun

I just started reading Hunger (no games) by Knut Hamsun. He’s been on my list of authors I’d like to read for a long time now so it’s a pleasure to finally read his words. It was published in 1890 and takes place in Kristiania, current day Olso, explained as ‘this wondrous city that no one leaves before it has made its marks upon him.’ The story follows a struggling writer through the city streets in search of ends meet. I really hope it rains this weekend so I won’t feel guilty staying indoors and reading. If not, reading in a park will do.

The 1st edition.

About Soup and the Clouds

I treasure the small adventures in life. Such as, listening to records, making jam from farmer's market produce, seeing new sites, eating the best tomato I've ever had, reading a good book, watching a film, appreciating a good font, going for a long bike ride or walking down a street I've never walked on before. The list goes on.
