Reviews

". . . Knausgaard explores the various ways language can be leveraged for honest disclosure and tragic nationalism . . . and whether confessional style can be a force against propagandistic writing . . . [Book 6] caps a remarkable achievement...A fittingly bulky end to a radical feat of oversharing." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review"At last, the highly anticipated conclusion to Knausgaard's six-part masterwork arrives in English . . . Perhaps most notable about Book 6 is a 400-page examination of Hitler, Nazism, and the nature of evil, which draws parallels between Mein Kampf and My Struggle . . . This uncomfortable comparison simultaneously explodes the purview of what fiction can do while zeroing in on the unique concerns of his narrator." --Booklist, starred review"The final book of Knausgaard's six-volume masterpiece goes maximalist and metatextual, examining the impact that the autobiographical series has had on the author's life and the lives of those around him . . . The rationale for his project comes into brilliant focus. This volume is a thrilling conclusion to Knausgaard's epic series." --Publishers Weekly, starred review
