Novelists worship him. Critics fall over themselves to explain his genius. His celebrity fans say his books are like drugs. ‘I just read 200 pages and I need the next volume like crack. It’s completely blown my mind,’ Zadie Smith tweeted.
What is it that makes Knausgaard’s highly confessional books so addictive? What does it say about our voyeuristic urges that the minutiae of his life are so gripping?

Introducing: Our new debate...and a new look

We're delighted to announce that tomorrow night we'll be hosting a debate on the future of journalism with +ITV News. It's called "Smartphone journalism: the changing face of news" and we'll have a selection of the worlds' leading journalists and commentators holding forth, including Will Self and Paul Conroy. The debate will be streamed live on this page from 6.45pm (UK time) - we hope you can tune in. 

Important announcement number two: we’re changing our page name to Intelligence Squared

Since 2011 the Versus events have been an important part of Intelligence Squared's work, with fantastic debates on Hip Hop, the War on Drugs and drones to name a few. The Versus format has worked brilliantly for bringing world experts together on the most provocative  and important topics of the day, and we’ll continue to use it. But to ensure that we can focus all our attention on one page rather than two, and so that we can make our home on G+ as engaging and easy to find as possible, we're bringing all our events under the Intelligence Squared banner. 

We hope you continue to enjoy watching, debating and commenting on this page.
