Geir Gulliksen and Linn Ullmann, moderated by John Freeman

In our Writer to Writer series, two authors who are fans of each other’s work come together for conversation. Good friends, Linn Ullmann and Geir Gulliksen are among Norway’s leading novelists. Most recent by Ullmann is “Unquiet,” a novel inspired by memories of her father. Gulliksen’s latest is “The Story of a Marriage,” a searing novel about a man who attempts to empathetically understand his wife’s infidelity. Gulliksen is Ullmann’s editor (along with Karl Ove Knausgaard’s) at Forlaget Oktober. We’ve asked John Freeman, one of today’s preeminent critics who knows them both, to probe this literary friendship.
