I have just finished writing this book for you.

What happened that summer nearly three years ago, and its repercussions, are long since over.

Sometimes it hurts to live, but there is always something to live for.

Spring follows a father and his newborn daughter through one day in April, from sunrise to sunset. It is a day filled with the small joys of family life, but also its deep struggles.

With this striking novel in the Seasons quartet, Karl Ove Knausgaard reflects uncompromisingly on life's darkest moments and what can sustain us through them.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Entirely ingenious. Knausgaard isn't afraid to be gauche, anxious, vulgar, inconsistent, portentous, sentimental. He makes virtues of what, in literary novels, are often counted faults. And he makes them moving." -- Sam Leith * Daily Telegraph *
"An unexpected treat... A lovely piece of work." * Sunday Telegraph *
"Spring features Knausgaard unbound. . . the book's blunt, unforced telling brings the larger project's meaning into sudden, brilliant focus... Knausgaard has assembled this living encyclopedia for his daughter with a wild and desperate sort of love, as a way to forge her attachment to the world, to fasten her to it... Fall in love with the world, he enjoins, stay sensitive to it, stay in it." * The New York Times *
"Heavy but not heavy-handed, this true noir of the North is dark, bleak and moody. This story about life that's set over the course of single day will move and disturb in equal measure." * Monocle *
"Oodles of musing on life and art that's by turns meandering and electrifying." -- Anthony Cummins * Metro *
