Karl Ove Knausgaard writes about his childhood and teenage years, his infatuation with rock music, his relationship with his loving yet almost invisible mother and his distant and unpredictable father and his bewilderment and grief on his father’s death.
When Karl Ove becomes a father himself, he must balance the demands of caring for a young family with his determination to write great literature. Knausgaard has created a universal story of the struggles, great and small, that we all face in our lives.
"It's unbelievable.... It's completely blown my mind." (Zadie Smith)
"A scorchingly honest, unflinchingly frank, hyperreal memoir of the life of one man and his family." (Guardian)
