Fans of writer Karl Ove Knausgaard received a mixed bag of news yesterday.
On one hand, he’s writing a new novel. On the other hand ... it’s for the Future Library project, meaning it won’t be read until 2114.
Knausgaard also wouldn’t share any details about the work in progress with the Guardian.
The Future Library is an art project that collects books by contemporary authors in a special, locked room in Oslo’s Deichman Library.
Knausgaard is the first Norwegian writer to join the project, which also counts Han Kang, Margaret Atwood, and Elif Shafak as participants.
He's best known for his six-volume autobiographical novel My Struggle as well as several other works of fiction.
