Publisher Description

The final installment in the long awaited, internationally celebrated My Struggle series

The full scope and achievement of Knausgaard’s monumental work is evident in this final installment of his My Struggle series. Grappling directly with the consequences of Knausgaard’s transgressive blurring of public and private, Book Six is a troubling and engrossing look into the mind of one of the most exciting artists of our time. Knausgaard includes a long essay on Hitler and Mein Kampf, particularly relevant (if not prescient) in our current global climate of ascending dictatorships.

Quotes

  • “What is perhaps most radical about reading the novel is the feeling of intimacy it creates…Knausgaard’s virtuoso exposition of awkward everyday social interactions is unmatched in contemporary literature.”

    - World Literature Today
  • “The rationale for his project comes into brilliant focus. This volume is a thrilling conclusion to Knausgaard’s epic series.”

    - Publishers Weekly (starred review)
  • “For fans addicted to the first five books, Book Six is a welcome return to the microscopic observations and internal ramblings of a gargantuan mind. For readers coming to the series for the first time, it’s an encyclopedic introduction to everything that went before.”

    - Washington Independent Review of Books
  • "‘The novel is the form of the small life,’ [Knausgaard] says in Book Six. Yet it can be the form of the large life too; and even the story of a small life must offer more than mere documentation. In Knausgaard’s defense, one could say that he convinces us that, behind his small lives, something much bigger is hiding. From time to time, his plodding style changes gear, taking his readers up into the realm of the sublime.”
