Gunnhild Øyehaug is busy reinventing the short story form, winning admirers on both sides of the Atlantic with writing that is quietly morbid and delightfully comical. She joins us in Dublin to discuss her collection Knots which ranges from short microfictions to ruminative longer tales, always fascinated by human consciousness and the absurdity of life. Øyehaug is also poet, essayist and literary editor.

‘I have been captivated by Gunnhild Øyehaug’s wit, imagination, ironic social commentary and fearless embrace of any and every form of storytelling’
Lydia Davis
