Karl Ove Knausgaard is the author of the internationally-renowned My Struggle series. The six-volume epic, originally published in Norwegian between 2009-2011, was a pioneering work in the genre of autofiction, a multi-thousand page rumination on the drama of quotidian details. His latest novel, The Morning Star, is “a hybrid of a Stephen King novel, multi-perspective realist drama, true-crime thriller and theological/spiritual treatise” (Heidi Julavits, New York Times Book Review). It is an astonishing, ambitious, rich novel about what we don’t understand, and our attempts to make sense of our world nonetheless.
