A New York Times bestseller, My Struggle: Book One introduces American readers to the audacious, addictive, and profoundly surprising international literary sensation that is the provocative and brilliant six-volume autobiographical novel by Karl Ove Knausgaard. It has already been anointed a Proustian masterpiece and is the rare work of dazzling literary originality that is intensely, irresistibly readable. Unafraid of the big issues-death, love, art, fear-and yet committed to the intimate details of life as it is lived, My Struggle is an essential work of contemporary literature.

"Powerfully alive . . . Knausgaard is intense and utterly honest, unafraid to voice universal anxieties . . . He wants us to inhabit the ordinariness of life, which is sometimes visionary, sometimes banal, and sometimes momentous, but all of it perforce ordinary because it happens in the course of a life, and happens, in different forms, to everyone . . . There is something ceaselessly compelling about Knausgaard's book." --James Wood, The New Yorker (selected as one of the Books of the Year)"A fantastic novel . . . I cannot say anything other than that I am looking forward desperately to the rest of it." --Dagsavisen (Norway)"Knausgaard's thinking is magnificently unbridled." --Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (germany)"Between Proust and the woods . . . Like granite, precise and forceful. More real than reality." --La Repubblica (Italy)"I can't stop, I want to stop, I can't stop, just one more page, then I will cook dinner, just one more page . . ." --Vasterbottens-kuriren (Sweden) Powerfully alive . . .
