Reviews

"Powerfully alive . . . Knausgaard is intense and utterly honest, unafraid to voice universal anxieties . . . He wants us to inhabit the ordinariness of life, which is sometimes visionary, sometimes banal, and sometimes momentous, but all of it perforce ordinary because it happens in the course of a life, and happens, in different forms, to everyone . . . There is something ceaselessly compelling about Knausgaard's book." --James Wood, The New Yorker (selected as one of the Books of the Year)

"A fantastic novel . . . I cannot say anything other than that I am looking forward desperately to the rest of it." --Dagsavisen (Norway)

"Knausgaard's thinking is magnificently unbridled." --Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (germany)

"Between Proust and the woods . . . Like granite, precise and forceful. More real than reality." --La Repubblica (Italy)

"I can't stop, I want to stop, I can't stop, just one more page, then I will cook dinner, just one more page . . ." --Västerbottens-kuriren (Sweden)
