A Man in Love

My Struggle Book 2

'Intense and vital... Ceaselessly compelling... Superb' James Wood, New Yorker

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.

A Man in Love, the second book of six in the My Struggle cycle, sees Knausgaard write of tempestuous relationships, the trials of parenthood and an urge to create great art. His singular insight and exhilarating honesty must be read to be believed.

Shortlisted for the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize 2014.

Rezension

Zitat
"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
