'It's unbelievable. I just read 200 pages of it and I need the next volume like crack. It's completely blown my mind' Zadie Smith via Twitter

Karl Ove Knausgaard writes with exhilarating honesty about his childhood and teenage years, his infatuation with rock music, his relationship with his loving yet almost invisible mother and his distant and unpredictable father, and his bewilderment and grief on his father's death.
