• He’s a kind of surrealistic writer, very strange novels. I think that’s serious literature

    Haruki Murakami
  • Without question Norway's bravest, most intelligent novelist

    Per Petterson, author of Our Stealing Horses
  • Dag Solstad, Norway's most distinguished living writer, is a clear-eyed moralist who takes an existentialist's interest in the compromises, evasions and accommodations we make to get through life... Wryly humorous and needle-sharp in skewering pretension, Solstad is unlike anyone currently writing in English... A deeply rewarding novel

    Sunday Times
  • [An] exquisitely composed novel... Dag Solstad is an unflinching explorer of the plight of educated humankind in the face of the inexplicable whose artistry matches his ambitious theme

    Paul Binding, Independent
  • At times dark and moving, even, on occasion, unexpectedly funny, Professor Andersen's Night tackles a premise which would prove just as intriguing in a pacey thriller... It is visceral in its investigations into the derailing of one man's life in all its sticky, existential glory

    Scotland on Sunday
