From global literary superstar Karl Ove Knausgaard, an achingly beautiful collection of daily meditations and love letters addressed directly to Knausgaard's unborn daughter In Winter, we rejoin the great Karl Ove Knausgaard as the birth of his daughter draws near. In preparation for her arrival, he takes stock of the world, seeing it anew. While new life is on the horizon, the earth is also in hibernation, waiting for the warmer weather to return. In his inimitably sensitive style, he writes about everything from the moon, winter boots and messiness, to owls and birthdays. Taking nothing for granted, he fills these everyday familiar objects and ideas with new meaning. Startling, compassionate, and exquisitely beautiful, Knausgaard's writing is like nothing else. Somehow, he shows the world as it really is, at once mundane and sublime.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The second volume of his autobiographical quartet based on the seasons is even more beautiful than the first... Hauntingly translated by Ingvild Burkey, Winter will reward every curious reader. Insightful, giddy and full of energy, Knausgaard's memoir throbs with the miraculous imminence of new life and the thrill of just being." * The Economist 1843 *
"When Knausgaard exposes himself in the manner of his autobiographical novel My Struggle... it's interesting enough. But he becomes more charming and persuasive when he wanders into quizzical speculation - about, say, why coffins don't have windows or how sex is like cannibalism." -- Anthony Cummins * Observer *
"The author casts the world in a holy glow of surprise and compassion... A winningly interior journey into the most interior of seasons." * Starred Kirkus review *
"It sounds mad, and often is, but it's also sweet, funny and brimful of wide-eyed seasonal wonder." -- Anthony Cummins * Metro *
