Summer : (Seasons Quartet 4), Hardback Book

Summer : (Seasons Quartet 4) Hardback

Illustrated by Anselm Kiefer

Part of the Seasons Quartet series

Hardback

Description

Summer is the fourth volume of the Seasons quartet, a collection of short prose and diaries written by a father for his youngest daughter, with stunning artwork by Anselm Kiefer. Your voice woke me up around eight this morning, it sounded unusually close, since, as I discovered upon opening my eyes, you were lying in our bed.

You smiled at me and began talking. I made coffee and had a smoke in the office before I ate breakfast with you, and when your mother got up, I came in here to write a new piece. In Summer, Karl Ove Knausgaard writes about long days full of sunlight, eating ice cream with his children, lawn sprinklers and ladybirds.

He experiments with the beginnings of a novel and keeps a diary in which the small events of his family's life are recorded.

Against a canvas of memories, longings, and experiences of art and literature, he searches for the meaning of moments as they pass us by.
