An irresistible story of childhood adventure from the international phenomenon, Karl Ove Knausgaard
An irresistible story of childhood adventure from the international phenomenon, Karl Ove Knausgaard.
* Karl Ove Knausgaard's dazzling new novel, The Morning Star, is available to pre-order now *
Childhood is exhilarating and terrifying. For the young Karl Ove, new houses, classes and friends are met with manic excitement and creeping dread. Adults occupy godlike positions of power, benevolent in the case of his doting mother, tyrannical in the case of his cruel father.
In the now infamously direct style of the My Struggle cycle, Knausgaard describes a time in which victories and defeats are felt keenly and every attempt at self-definition is frustrated. This is a book about family, memory and how we never become quite what we set out to be.
'Knausgaard finds the sublime in the everyday... Boyhood Island reverberates with the joys and anxieties of early youth, and Knausgaard brilliantly recreates their exaggerated feel'
