Notably: The first commercial phone service between New York City and London was established on this day in 1927, just four months before Lindbergh flew across the Atlantic. It was very biog news, as you can see from the front page of the Times below. “Hello, London,” were the first words. They called it a “radio telephone” and “the most remarkable communication service yet devised by man.” To think that there are still people alive today who were alive then, if not yet old enough to dumb down their imagination for a phone call. The two people on the phone were Walter Gifford, AT&T’s president, speaking from 195 Broadway, and G. Evelyn Murray, secretary of the british Post Office, “over a circuit of 850 miles of land line and 6,300 miles of ether path.” They were followed by innumerable people calling each other, including financial deals in the millions of dollars. The publisher of the New York Times also called the editor of the London Times.

When the first volumes of My Struggle emerged in Norway in 2009, they created a national uproar. Nobody was more stunned than Knausgaard that when others beheld his self-portrait they saw their own faces. “It was very shocking when I realized how people read it,” he says. “I thought, This is so private it’s almost unreadable—but it worked the other way around.” He was so convinced that the book would hold no interest for non-Scandinavians that he told a British publisher who expressed interest not to buy it. He was ashamed of the writing. “It’s bad,” he still says. “I wrote it rather blindly, I didn’t think it was exceptional. I thought this would be a minor literary book, I thought it would be a step down from my other books, I thought maybe it was boring and uninteresting and really about nothing.” He realized his mistake only when he met Scandinavian journalists for the first time, “and some of them were almost white in the face and found it very hard to discuss the book. I thought then: Something is going to happen.” It did; a new British publisher soon came calling and publishers from dozens of other countries. Now he says, “I think people almost vomit when they hear my name because I’m so often in the news. It’s true. Oh, God. I try to keep a low profile in Norway, but it’s hard. It’s terrible.”
–From “Why Karl Ove Knausgaard Can’t Stop Writing,” Wall Street Journal, November 4, 2015.
