Noch Hitler, noch het lot van diens vele slachtoffers, noch Hamsun de schrijver zullen licht vergeten worden. This book is a masterpiece of memories, failures, and reconciliation. If I’m wrong, and he was in part an opportunist, he sure picked the wrong side of this one. It seems to ahmsun unlikely that Hamsun was ever a Nazi or had serious Nazi sympathies.
Definitely a book to read after going through a few of Hamsun’s books from each of his phases, as it combines both as well as an autobiography.
