Episode 26 of 28

Magazine arts show. Leading neurosurgeon Henry Marsh interviews Norwegian author Karl Ove Knausgaard, in what should be an entertaining and cerebral encounter.

Karl Ove Knausgaard is one of the most important authors writing today. His obsessively autobiographical books have been compared to Proust and James Joyce, but he has also attracted controversy as he made his private life into public property.

Henry Marsh is a leading neurosurgeon whose best-selling book Do No Harm opened up the world of brain surgery to readers, to rapturous reviews. In this Artsnight special, Henry interviews the Norwegian author, in what should be an entertaining and cerebral encounter.
