Description - The Morning Star: the new novel from the author of My Struggle by Karl Ove Knausgaard
The major new novel from one of the world's greatest writers
The breathtaking new novel from the internationally bestselling author of My Struggle, 'the literary sensation of the decade' (Sunday Times)
One long night in August, Arne and Tove are staying with their children in their summer house in southern Norway. Kathrine, a priest, is flying home from a Bible seminar, questioning her marriage. Journalist Jostein is out drinking for the night, while his wife, Turid, a nurse at a psychiatric care unit, is on a nightshift when one of her patients escapes.
Above them all, a huge star suddenly appears blazing in the sky. It brings with it a mysterious sense of foreboding.
Strange things start to happen as nine lives come together under the star. Hundreds of crabs amass on the road as Arne drives at night; Jostein receives a call about a death metal band found brutally murdered in a Satanic ritual; Kathrine conducts a funeral service for a man she met at the airport - but is he actually dead?
The Morning Star is about life in all its mundanity and drama, the strangeness that permeates our world, and the darkness in us all. Karl Ove Knausgaard's astonishing new novel goes to the utmost limits of freedom and chaos, to what happens when forces beyond our comprehension are unleashed, and the realms of the living and the dead collide.
Praise for My Struggle-
'Tremendous, maddening, addictive, gripping' Observer
'Powerfully alive... intense and utterly honest' James Wood
'Beautifully human' The Times
