* Karl Ove Knausgaard's dazzling new novel, The Morning Star, is available to pre-order now *

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.

'A masterpiece... Its depiction of a family's disintegration is one of the most powerful pieces of writing I've read in years' Observer
