    Oh, Karl Ove, you capture the heart break of the lovesick, hypersensitive teenager that speaks to our own lost teenage years And thanks for Book 2, writing of your life during your 20s and 30s, married, raising children, dealing with the whole urban banana A reader might think very self centered of a writer to pen 6 thick volumes of his life, b

    from Min kamp 1 It was now than two weeks since I had published my review of Min kamp 1, and during that time I had not posted anything new Every day, I stared at the screen, tried to begin, abandoned my unsuccessful attempt after half an hour Maybe I would never again manage to produce a meaningful piece of writing I checked my mail for t

    The original Norwegian editions of Karl Ove Knausgaard s six volume My Struggle series, presented in thick 500 page installments, have purportedly sold than a half million copies and won lots of prizes If rumors of such critical and commercial success are true, even if only in Scandinavia, it s good news for humanity, since these volumes lack traditional plot, le

    Book Two of My Struggle makes good on the promise of an epic of the everyday toward the end of the book Karl Ove describes his idea of literature as a kind of participation in the gaze of another, how only diaries and essays continue to move him as works of literature because that is where one might come closest to inhabiting another s gaze on the world, another s purview onto being Thus the book he begins

    A Man in Love The fact that paintings and, to some extent, photographs were so important for me had something to do with this They contained no words, no concepts, and when I looked at them what I experienced, what made them so important, was also non conceptual There was something stupid in this, an area that was completely devoid of intelligence, which I had difficulty acknowledgng or accepting, yet which perhaps was
