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 father's 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. Another international sensation from the publishers of HHhH, 1Q84 and Coetzee's Summertime.

“A brave and immersive book”

This is a forensic fictionalised account of part of the author's adolescence, and of coping with his father's death and its dispiriting and degrading aftermath. There's a mass of detail here, together... More

“Introspective”

A bit of a curate's egg, but rather too introspective even for my liking. There are some good descriptive passages, particularly those that give a sense of how the snow pervades everything in Norway. Being of a... More

“Uninteresting”

I`m not sure how I really feel about this book. I`ve never been too keen on autobiographies and this novel is certainly that. I was given this book to review, but most probably I wouldn`t of picked it up myself.
