A Death in the Family

My Struggle 1

A novel in which the author writes with painful honesty about his childhood and teenage years, his infatuation with rock music, his relationship with his loving yet almost invisible mother and his distant and unpredictable father, and bewilderment and grief on his father's death.

Karl Ove Knausgaard's first novel, Out of the World, was the first ever debut novel to win The Norwegian Critics' Prize, and his second novel, A Time to Every Purpose Under Heaven, was widely acclaimed. A Death in the Family received the prestigious Brage Award. The My Struggle cycle has been heralded as a masterpiece wherever it appears. The six novels of the My Struggle cycle can be read independently or as one hugely ambitious project. This breathtaking cycle has been the greatest literary sensation in Norway in decades. The books have spurred a heated literary debate about the use of autobiographical elements in fiction, and about literary criticism in general. In addition to amazing reviews and several awards and nominations, this fascinating literary experiment has generated an enormous interest among journalists, critics and readers, resulting in hundreds of articles, commentaries, essays, blog posts and discussions.
"Intense and vital.ceaselessly compelling.superb" -- James Wood New Yorker "A masterpiece... Meticulously detailed, harrowing, oddly beautiful, its depiction of a family's disintegration is one of the most powerful pieces of writing I've read in years" -- Stuart Evers Observer, Books of the Year "The best book I read this year...full of artistic, moral and technical daring" -- Rachel Cusk Guardian, Books of the Year "This suburban epic, electrifying in candour and eloquence, feels streets ahead of the comparable Jonathan Franzen" -- Boyd Tonkin Independent, Books of the Year "Incredibly moving" -- Selina Guinness Irish Times, Books of the Year
