I am reading "Hunger" by Knut Hamsun. If his photograph on Wikipedia is any indication, Mr. Hamsun was quite handsome -- the kind of fellow I'd ogle on a subway platform. With the exception of his eyewear, he appears modern in the photograph, especially his hairstyle. Oh, to have met him on the subway in 1890!

Alas, he was in close contact with a man named Adolph Hitler. Now I think that if we were to chat each other up over a tall glass of coffee, I'd have to put him in the "no, thank you, I'd rather not" category.
