Reviews

With this piece, Knausgaard has achieved what he elsewhere says he hopes to do as a novelist, which is to relay his experience as honestly as he can, gambling that it will somehow be universal. Here...he has diagnosed an entire modern psyche... Against which, true thinkers and writers, such as Knausgaard, are our only hope -- Steven Poole * Daily Telegraph *
Clear, elegant, dense and engrossing... Even hardened Knausgaard sceptics...should find something to admire here; and fans will be thrilled -- Lucy Atkins * Sunday Times *
Perceptive and inspiring -- Simon Humphreys * Mail on Sunday *
