In the Land of the Cyclops

Essays




A brilliantly wide-ranging essay collection, spanning the nature of fate to brain surgery with Henry Marsh; literature, philosophy, art and how our daily and creative lives intertwine.

Knausgaard meditates on themes familiar from his fiction – where the conscious and unconscious meet, the limits on privacy, his intense and intensely personal reading of literature, philosophy, and art history, and the gulf between and overlap of creative and daily lives.
