  1. Thanks for posting this. Hamsun’s Growth of the Soil is one of my favorite novels, 1 ten, and if pressed I might say my number 1 novel.

  2. A masterpiece! I’d never heard of Knut Hamsun before, have read other of his work since and am more than a little grateful to you for introducing me to him. Thanks so much!
