My Struggle: Book Four

Karl Ove Knausgaard

The sensation that is My Struggle shows no signs of stopping. Actually, with the fourth book in the collection, Knausgaard seems to be picking up steam. Often compared with Proust’s In Search of Lost Time, Knausgaard’s work delves into every corner of his history, despite how dark and messy those corners may be. In book four, Knausgaard makes his way to an Arctic fishing village, where his drinking issues escalate, and his late teenage years get filled with desire. If you’ve already read the first three books, it’s not like we have to sell you on the fourth. Link
