Karl Ove Knausgaard: The Morning Star

In conversation with Claire Armitstead

Oct 5, 2021

Karl Ove Knausgaard, whose My Struggle series has been widely praised as “perhaps the most significant literary enterprise of our times” (Rachel Cusk), now publishes a new novel, The Morning Star, which depicts the metaphysical and mundane effects of the arrival of a mysterious heavenly body on a group of everyday Norwegians.

“Knausgaard brings it all alive in his prose, makes it shimmer,” writes the Los Angeles Review of Books. “Whether intellectually parsing for meaning or playing this existential video game of political turmoil, horror, and heartache, his writing flows easily from quiet, thoughtful engagement to ecstatic communion with the world.”
