John Patrick Shanley on The Road Leads On

The Road Leads On by Knut Hamsun is a fascinating tale by an important if morally imperiled novelist. (An unfortunate photo op with Hitler late in life.) I guarantee this slowly building portrait of a manager of a sheep farm will never leave you. The theme of the book: “Drive without purpose leads inevitably to destruction” certainly has its applications in today's world.
