About this product
- DescriptionIt's unbelievable. I just read 200 pages of it and I need the next volume like crack. It's completely blown my mind . (Zadie Smith via Twitter on My Struggle Book 1). This is a book about leaving your wife and everything you kw. It is about fresh starts, about love, about friendship. It is also about the earth-shattering experience of becoming a father, the mundane struggles of family life, ridiculously unsuccessful holidays, humiliating antenatal music classes, fights with quarrelsome neighbours, the emotional strains of childrens' birthday parties and pushing a pram around Stockholm when all you really want to do is write. This is a book about one man's life but, somehow, about everyone else's too. A Man in Love, the second book of six in the My Struggle cycle, sees Knausgaard write of tempestuous relationships, the trials of parenthood and an urge to create great art. His singular insight and exhilarating honesty must be read to be believed. This is ather international sensation from the publishers of HHhH, 1Q84 and Coetzee's Summertime. Fans include Zadie Smith, Jonathan Lethem, Hari Kunzru, Jeffrey Eugenides, James Wood and Rachel Cusk.
- Author BiographyKarl Ove Knausgaard's first novel, Out of the World, was the first ever debut novel to win The Norwegian Critics' Prize, and his second novel, A Time to Every Purpose Under Heaven, was widely acclaimed. A Death in the Family, the first of the My Struggle cycle of novels, received the prestigious Brage Award. The My Struggle cycle has been heralded as a masterpiece wherever it appears. The six novels of the My Struggle cycle can be read independently or as one hugely ambitious project. This breathtaking cycle has been the greatest literary sensation in Norway in decades. The books have spurred a heated literary debate about the use of autobiographical elements in fiction, and about literary criticism in general. In addition to amazing reviews and several awards and nominations, this fascinating literary experiment has generated an enormous interest among journalists, critics and readers, resulting in hundreds of articles, commentaries, essays, blog posts and discussions.
