Book Description Brooklyn, NY: Archipelago Books, 2014. Hardcover. Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 430 pages. Published in 2014. The third volume of the author's "My Struggle" six-volume novel. The translation is also known, particularly in the United Kingdom, as "Boyhood Island". The first appearance of the title in hardcover in the United States. Until now, all books published by Archipelago Books are softcover originals only. However, this book's bestseller success prompted the publisher to issue all six volumes in a Uniform Hardcover Edition. The softcover editions will continue to be published simultaneously in conjunction with another publisher, FSG. Presents Karl Ove Knausgaard's "Min Kamp" Volume Three in a felicitous English translation. Masterpiece. "Finds us in the sensuous realm of Karl Ove's childhood. It's the early 1970's and the family's trajectory: Upwardly mobile. The future seems limitless. In painstaking, sometimes self-lacerating detail, Knausgaard paints a world familiar to anyone who can recall the intensity and novelty of childhood experience, one in which children and adults lead parallel lives that never meet" (Publisher's blurb). What is the significance of, and why all the fuss behind, Karl Ove Knausgaard's "My Struggle"? It is the most full-fledged break from - and probably signals the end of - the mannerism, academicism, post-modernism, and all other pretentious and tired isms of our time. It announces the arrival of a major original voice in literature, writing without the crutch called "concept", in deceptively simple yet eloquent prose. It marks the rejection of our obsession with "celebrity lives", by focussing on the tiniest details of one man's ordinary life as well as deeply painful struggle. In sum, it represents, flaws and all, nothing less than the beginning of a new way of writing and possibly, a new era in literature. Time will tell if "My Struggle" is our century's response to Proust's "In Search of Lost Time" (1913-1927), as its most ardent admirers (and its publisher) assert that it is. An absolute "must-have" title for Karl Ove Knausgaard collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Karl Ove Knausgaard. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. It should also be noted that this copy has his full signature, which is the way he signed the first three volumes of "My Struggle" when they first came out. Alas, beginning with "My Struggle: Volume Four: Dancing In The Dark", sheer demand, his rock-star status, and time constraint have made Knausgaard resort to shorthand, an Ondaatje-like swirl of a signature, a drastic abbreviation especially evident in the bookplate-signed copies. Laid-in are copies of the publisher's promotional materials, "My Hero: Karl Ove Knausgaard" by Jonathan Lethem and "The Magical Realism of Norwegian Nights" by Knausgaard, which first appeared in the New York Times Magazine. This title is a great book. This is one of very few such signed copies of the First American Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. One of the greatest writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER KARL OVE KNAUSGAARD TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 1935744860. Signed by Author. Seller Inventory # 18849

Book Description London, England: Harvill Secker, 2014. Hardcover. Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 395 pages. Published in 2014. The third volume of the author's "My Struggle" six-volume novel. The translation is published in the United Kingdom as "Boyhood Island", and also as part of the British "My Struggle" six-volume cycle. It's the other way around in the United States, where "My Struggle" takes precedence over the individual volumes. Published in a regular first print run that sold out immediately after publication. The production values of the British Edition are superb and exemplary. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Karl Ove Knausgaard's "Min Kamp" Volume Three in a felicitous English translation. Masterpiece. "Finds us in the sensuous realm of Karl Ove's childhood. It's the early 1970's and the family's trajectory: Upwardly mobile. The future seems limitless.

An absolute "must-have" title for Karl Ove Knausgaard collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed, placed, and dated (in the year of publication) in blue pen on the title page by the author: "Edinburgh 10/8/14 Karl Ove Knausgaard".

It should also be noted that this copy has his full signature, which is the way he signed the first three volumes of "My Struggle" when they first came out.
