A Death in the Family: My Struggle, Book 1

by Karl Ove Knausgaard, translated by Don Bartlett
£8.99   paperback  Vintage (2013)

A Death in the Family: My Struggle, Book 1 by Karl Ove Knausgaard, translated by Don Bartlett A searingly honest, addictive and controversial read from the international sensation and bestseller, Karl Ove Knausgaard.

"It's unbelievable. I just read 200 pages of it and I need the next volume like crack. It's completely blown my mind"
(Zadie Smith via Twitter)
Karl Ove Knausgaard writes with exhilarating 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 his bewilderment and grief on his fatherís death. When Karl Ove becomes a father himself, he must balance the demands of caring for a young family with his determination to write great literature.
 
A Death in the Family is the first of the six books in the My Struggle cycle. In it Knausgaard has created a universal story which is gripping, hugely readable and written as if the author's very life were at stake.
