Dag Solstad

Norwegian writer

Dag Solstad serves up another helping of his wan and wise almost-comedy.

—Geoff Dyer

Since he published his first book of stories in 1965, Dag Solstad has been to Scandinavian literature what Philip Roth has been to American letters or Günter Grass to German writing: an unavoidable voice.

The Paris Review

He’s a kind of surrealistic writer—serious literature.

—Haruki Murakami

His language sparkles with its new old-fashioned elegance, and radiates a unique luster, inimitable and full of élan.

—Karl Ove Knausgaard
