Kenneth Moe is a clear literary talent – it was obvious to us that we were dealing with an author right from the start. I needed only to read a few sentences of his manuscript to understand that this was something I wanted to work with and eventually publish.Karl Ove Knausgård
Kenneth has a strong awareness of form; he’s also stubborn and possesses a completely original literary voice. We’re sure that Restless will be the first of many books in a promising career.
