A Man in Love : My Struggle Book 2 Paperback / softback

Part of the My Struggle series


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