A Man in Love

My Struggle Book 2




An electrifying story about love and new life from the international phenomenon, Karl Ove Knausgaard

An electrifying story about love and new life from the international phenomenon, Karl Ove Knausgaard
This is a book about leaving your wife and everything you know.

It is about fresh starts, about love, about friendship. It is also about the earth-shattering experience of becoming a father, the mundane struggles of family life, ridiculously unsuccessful holidays, humiliating antenatal music classes, fights with quarrelsome neighbours, the emotional strains of childrens’ birthday parties and pushing a pram around Stockholm when all you really want to do is write.

This is a book about one man’s life but, somehow, about everyone else’s too.
