Uff da! Norwegian writer Karl Ove Knausgaard’s six-volume autobiography, My Struggle, is so popular that it’s wreaking social havoc across Europe, according to no less an expert on civil unrest than The Economist.
One in ten Norwegians have read some of the book, and companies have introduced “Knausgaard-free days” in order to keep people’s minds on work.
Put the pen down, Karl! Don’t you know that people in your country have TV shows about firewood to watch?
