Sigrid Undset (1882–1949) is considered one of Norway’s greatest writers. She is best known for the epic medieval trilogy Kristin Lavransdatter, published between 1920 and 1922, and the four-volume work Olav Audunssøn (translated in 1928 as The Master of Hestviken), published between 1925 and 1927.
Tiina Nunnally is the translator of more than fifty works of fiction, including Kristin Lavransdatter and Jenny by Sigrid Undset, The Royal Physician’s Visit by Per Olov Enquist, and The Land of Dreams by Vidar Sundstøl (Minnesota, 2013).
Jane Smiley is the author of several books, including A Thousand Acres, which was awarded the Pulitzer Prize.
