Essay on translating Fosse and Knausgaard: Pure Prose

An Irish Examiner Writer's Pick Book of the Year:
"Hypnotic, hallucinatory, and utterly compelling... Morning and Evening is a breathtaking read. Damion Searls deserves high praise for the remarkably readable translation, and it is a testament to his skill that he can replicate Fosse's stylistic ambition while still preserving the book's larger sense of compression.
   [Fosse] is undoubtedly one of the world's most important and versatile literary voices, [and] with this short novel, he has created something special and important, an unforgettable reading experience, and one of the books of the year." —Billy O'Callaghan
