The Outrun. Amy Liptrot. I have given away my soul. It may have been the childhood abuse from his alcoholic father which he sees as a major force in shaping him that drove him to write about his life. In my typical random fashion, I have read only Book 4, Dancing in the Dark —two years ago—and now, Book 2. It is for me. Karl Ove Knausgaard has done this—his My Struggle sequence of novels is an extreme case.
He succeeds because of his exceptional energy and talent as a writer, the richness of his mind I have to admit some of his philosophical digressions and analyses of Norwegian writers were beyond me , and his emotional honesty. You can read a fascinating interview with Don Bartlett in The Los Angeles Review of Books , in which he talks about the stamina and creativity he needed to translate My Struggle.
This review is an excellent piece of long-form journalism. For Knausgaard, the consequences have been severe. His wife had a nervous breakdown and their marriage almost fell apart. I enjoyed this post. Thank you for the honest critique! His books are wonderful when you have plenty of time to get lost in them.

I'm exuberant about life--and writing! Skip to content. I can think of three reasons why My Struggle has become a massive success wherever it has been published: Knausgaard is emotionally honest. We, the readers, are not simply voyeurs of his life. We recognize our own fears, insecurities, joys, and irrationalities.
My Struggle: Book 2 : A Man in Love - ersorcugoro.tk
My Struggle breaks the rules of writing. There is no editing, no winnowing out the unimportant. This is part of his point, part of the paradox of life: we have to live with this deluge of everyday domestic routines and repetitive conversations and thoughts, which at times contrasts so ridiculously with our most sublime experiences and emotions. Knausgaard can write. However, the rest of us could not get away with 3, pages of autobiographical meanderings.
