‘North Pond Hermit’ Interviewed by GQ Magazine

Maine State Police

GQ Magazine is publishing an interview with Christopher Knight, the North Pond Hermit. He’s the man that committed hundreds of burglaries in camps while living in the woods for decades in Rome. This is the first time he has spoken publicly.

The GQ Magazine issue with the interview will will be published nationally Aug. 26 but is available now at their website.

I drove until I was nearly out of gas. I took a small road. Then a small road off that small road. Then a trail off that. I had a backpack and minimal stuff. I had no plans. I had no map. I didn’t know where I was going. I just walked away.

Knight first went in the woods in 1986 and was arrested in April of 2013. He pleaded guilty last year to numerous burglaries and thefts. He currently is out of jail and participating in a special program that requires him to appear in front of a judge once a week.

I don’t like what I see in the society I’m about to enter. I don’t think I’m going to fit in. It’s too loud. Too colorful. The lack of aesthetics. The crudeness. The inanities. The trivia.

I don’t know your world. Only my world, and memories of the world before I went into the woods. What life is today? What is proper? I have to figure out how to live.
