An exhilarating story of ambition, joy and failure in early manhood from the international phenomenon, Karl Ove Knausgaard. * Karl Ove Knausgaard's dazzling new novel, The Morning Star, is available to pre-order now * As the youngest student to be admitted to Bergen's prestigious Writing Academy, Karl Ove arrives full of excitement and writerly aspirations. Soon though, he is stripped of his youthful illusions. His writing is revealed to be puerile and clichd, and his social efforts are a dismal failure. He drowns his shame in drink and rock music. Then, little by little, things begin to change. He falls in love, gives up writing and the beginnings of an adult life take shape. That is, until his self-destructive binges and the irresistible lure of the writer's struggle pull him back. 'Breathtaking... Knausgaard has a rare talent for making everyday life seem fascinating' The Times

Bracing, maddening and utterly compelling -- Robert Collins * The Sunday Times * Tremendous, maddening, addictive, gripping * Observer * It is a pen-and-paper virtual reality; after reading it you feel that another past has been downloaded into your mind -- Laurence Scott * Financial Times * Breathtaking... Knausgaard has a rare talent for making everyday life seem fascinating * The Times * For Knausgaard's obsessive fans, this cycle is the most exciting literary project of our times... Knausgaard is the most humane writer in the world He writes beautifully It is precisely in the commonness of the lovingly recorded details that these books spin their magic -- Daniel Swift * Spectator * Raw, fast, improvisatory, unfettered. Its addictive high-wire writing in which he unflinchingly reveals everything about himself * Shortlist * [Some Rain Must Fall] is Knausgaard at his best Its a rare novelist who writes about student bars and the Happy Mondays at the same time as yearning for spiritual salvation -- Max Liu * Independent * Part of Knausgaards appeal is believability: his books may be called novels but we read them as memoirs. The meticulous detail seems to guarantee their authenticity Childhood, sex, love, art, work and death are there too, writ small from his own perspective, but compellingly observed -- Blake Morrison * Guardian * Reverberates with lifes core questions In its depiction of the torment of writers block and a young adults struggle to construct a sense of self, both on and off the page, it is brilliant -- Anita Sethi * Mail on Sunday *
