This deserves to be called perhaps the most significant literary enterprise of our times
Rachel Cusk, Guardian
Shocking and compulsive
Sophie Hughes, Dazed and Confused
As invented and as real as life itself. Compelling, rewarding, maddening and often breathtaking, A Man In Love is a bold exploration of how we create and curate our lives
Stuart Evers, Observer
By closely examining his world, he gives readers impetus to reflect on their lives. He reveals plenty about himself and his loved ones, but the people we learn most about from My Struggle are ourselves
Max Liu, Independent
Blistering…one of the most remarkable works of literature in recent times
David Winters, The Quietus
There is, I think, a nobility in Knausgaard’s decision to describe how he really felt, to expose himself to the world without hiding behind the mask of a fictional character
Jake Kerridge, Sunday Express (Scotland)
Knausgaard compels the reader to carry on through a mix of astute observation and continually puncturing his own ego. Impressive
Doug Johnstone, Big Issue
A remarkable insight into the mind of a man in the grip of a mid-life crisis as he battles with the big questions posed by parenthood and the unwelcome realisation that there is no second chance
Susie Mesure, Independent on Sunday
Anthony Cummins, Daily Telegraph
As no other writer has quite managed, Knausgaard captures our modern self-preoccupation
Kate Webb, Times Literary Supplement
Maddening and fascinating
