A Death in the Family: My Struggle Book 1
A Paperback edition by Karl Ove Knausgaard in English and Norwegian (Mar 7, 2013)
'It's unbelievable... It's completely blown my mind' Zadie Smith
Karl Ove Knausgaard writes about his life with painful honesty. He 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. A profound and mesmerizing work, written as if the author's very life were at stake.
Shortlisted for the IMPAC Dublin Award.
