I started reading this author almost 40 years ago. Mostly I reread Mysteries, Pan, Victoria, and Hunger. I liked his Caucasus travelogue in Wonderland. And I've read some short pieces. I may still have a copy of Growth of the Soil that I bought many years ago, but still haven't read it. I understand it is different from the lyrical novels I mentioned above. In the late 1990s I taught a one-shot elective course called Misfits, Rebels, "Freaks," and Holy Fools, and Mysteries was one of the texts. (Other things included the Father Zosima portion, i.e. Book 6, of The Brothers Karamazov, de Quincey's Opium Eater, Turgenev's Fathers and Sons, and some short works.) I showed The Elephant Man and Herzog's Caspar Hauser movie. Hamsun's novel supplied the "misfit."
