An electrifying honest and autobiographical love story from the international sensation and bestseller, Karl Ove Knausgaard.
     
Karl Ove Knausgaard leaves his wife and everything he knows in Oslo for a fresh start in Stockholm. There he strikes up a deep and competitive friendship with Geir and pursues Linda, a beautiful poet who captivated him years ago.

A Man in Love, the second book of six in the My Struggle cycle, sees Knausgaard write of tempestuous relationships, the trials of parenthood and an urge to create great art. His singular insight and exhilirating honesty must be read to be believed.

About the Author:

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, the first of the My Struggle cycle of novels, 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.

Review:

"A stunningly eloquent set of reflections on masculinity, domesticity and the artist's itch to escape" -- Boyd Tonkin Independent "Punishingly honest record of the triumphs and banalities of his own life" -- Tim Martin Telegraph "My favourite book of the year... He has the ability to make the small details of his life fascinating" -- William Leith Spectator "A brutally honest self-examination in what feels like real time" -- Justine Jordan Guardian Online "Karl Ove Knausgaard's six-volume autobiographical novel My Struggle is one of the most absorbing literary projects of recent times, one that has seen the Norwegian writer dubbed the Scandinavian Proust" -- Stephen Romei Spectator "Packed with existential angst and fierce insights" Big Issue in the North "Required reading for new fathers" -- Richard Godwin Evening Standard "This is a reading experience like no other. Fearless in its truth-telling and as real as life, it is an epic study of what it feels like to be alive" -- Carys Davies Metro
