Norwegian author Karl Ove Knausgaard has been awarded the Jerusalem Prize for the Freedom of the Individual in Society.
Knausgaard is known mainly for his six-book series of autobiographical novels ‘My Struggle’.
The Jerusalem Prize is awarded every two years to a writer whose work best expresses and promotes the idea of ‘freedom of the individual in society’.
The prize is worth $10,000 and will be presented to Knausgaard during the Jerusalem International Book Fair in June.
