w. col. ill.
Knausgaard s art can still seem a kind of magic. How does he take the plainest things, in the plainest language, and make them feel so alive? The days, the months, the hovering presence of the daughter-to-be, charge the objects they delimit with a mortal urgency Day by day, radiantly, the mission succeeds. For even the familiarity and foreignness that box us in, or out, will bend to a sovereign art. . . for a little while, if only in the mind, we get to have our apple and eat it too. New York Times Book Review 

Simone Weil wrote that attention, taken to its highest degree, is the same thing as prayer and so it is here. Loose teeth, chewing gum, it all becomes noble, almost holy, under Knausgaard s patient, admiring gaze. The world feels repainted This book is full of wonders. The New York Times

This is a more accessible entry point to Knausgaard than his series of autobiographical novels (My Struggle), which is a boon for newcomers. For those familiar with his earlier work, by focusing on the world outside himself, he remains fresh and oftentimes surprising. Library Journal

Stuck in line? Turn to page 123. Read the two-page (1 minute, 45 seconds) chapter, Infants, on what is arguably life s greatest joy. Looking up, you ll love that you re in the holiday crush. Well, no. But it s a damn fine reverie. Men s Health

Karl Ove Knausgaard frames aging here as a kind of descent into Buddhism: the mindful enlightenment of marinating in the now. His new book is, accordingly, a series of short meditations on everyday things like plastic bags, frogs and war. ( War is both the simple shape of the arrowhead and the complicated life that it annihilates. ) I happened to turn 40 last week, and Knausgaard s claim rings true for me. New York Times Magazine

It s a sentimental week for parent readers. Fans of Karl Ove Knausgaard s sprawling and often dark six-volume autobiographical novel, My Struggle, might be surprised to find the author showing his short-and-sweet side in Autumn, a slender book of essays about the material world addressed to his daughter. New York Times, 10 Books We Recommend This Week

In these secular meditations, Knausgaard scratches away at the ordinary to reach the sublime finding what s in the picture, and what s hidden. Washington Post 

For all his rapturous passages of ecstasy and agony, Karl Ove Knausgaard can also make you laugh Autumn glows. The Economist 

Even more than in My Struggle, he seems to inhabit every age simultaneously: He is boy, adolescent, and father at once . If hard truths insist on hiding in the deep, these essays suggest, a hand-line will do as well as a drift net to haul them in. The Boston Globe

In his new book, Autumn, the first in a seasonal quartet, Knausgaard casts his gaze outward, crafting a lyrical collage of mini essays and letters to his unborn daughter. O Magazine

The most surprising thing about Autumn, the latest book from Norwegian literary superstar Karl Ove Knausgaard, is how tender it is. . . The spirit of that love animates this gentle, thoughtful book: love both for Knausgaard s unborn daughter and for finding elements of the transcendent in the mundane. It s tender, intimate, and lovely. Vox

The joys of one of the world s great living writers distilled.

With a Nordic half-wink of self-parody. No one dotes on details like Knausgaard.

Knausgaard is an acute, sometimes squirmingly honest analyst of domesticity and his relationship to his family. . ....he figures it out with the sharp radiance that is his gift.   Newsweek

Knausgaard can take the breath away, his compressed vignettes delivering the same emotional charge as longer sequences from his previous work. . . this first volume of the Seasons Quartet quietly illuminates Knausgaard s profound gift for making the reader see the world in fresh and unpredictable ways. The Guardian 

"Summer ends with one of the sweetest reading surprises of the year unexpected, tender, intense, and persuasive I encourage you to spend your autumn reading it." The Philadelphia Inquirer

Knausgaard covers fingers, bottles, infants, badgers, cars, loneliness, experience, lice, oil tankers, flies, vomit, dawn and much more, offering both humour and unpredictable logic. . . This book is important as it lays bare the endless sources of inspiration for one of the world s most successful writers of fiction. Reading this book is a tour through the fecund mind of Knausgaard. Open the Magazine 

Yes, this guy writes a ton. His massive, multivolume autobiography My Struggle is regarded as variously notorious or brilliant. But what a sweet, surprising, short collection of essays this is! Lie on the beach, sun beating down, and read about the season to come. Philadelphia Tribune

The great pleasure of Autumn is in watching how Knausgaard starts in commonplace observations of all the things we do, pissing is one of the most routine but then moves unexpectedly toward surprising conclusions. . . I ll look forward to Winter, Spring and Summer. San Francisco Chronicle

For those seeking. . . a moment of contemplative peace, the Norwegian writer Karl Ove Knausgaard s new book will help Knausgaard admires Madame Bovary above all other novels, saying Flaubert s sentences are like a rag rubbed across a windowpane encrusted with smoke and dirt which you have long since grown accustomed to seeing the world through. Autumn performs the same task. Toronto Star

This is not Knausgaard-lite; in crisp, imaginative bits of prose, he shakes up complacency and invites us to look again no bromides here. The overriding dichotomy is that the year is dying out and, at the same time, a baby is growing in utero and reaching out her little hand By writing about his family and their year of seasons, Knausgaard rescues them from the invisible pack. The Post and Courier

What truly unites these pieces is Knausgaard's sensibility, which is one part Montaigne (an urge to address big issues), one part Nicholson Baker (an eye for picayune detail), and one part Annie Dillard (an admiration for nature and an elegant prose style) A call to pay closer attention to the routine stuff in our lives and to allow ourselves to be thunderstruck by their beauty.   Kirkus Reviews (starred)

Novelist Knausgaard (My Struggle) eloquently expresses the delights, rewards, and insights of looking closely in this, the first of a projected quartet of autobiographical volumes based on the four seasons.  His writing encourages the reader to see the connections between quotidian things and the bigger picture and to appreciate both continuity and change. Autumn hums in the background as apple trees flourish and days get darker, and one looks forward to what associations he will uncover in the remaining seasons of the year. Publishers Weekly

Knausgaard has a gift for making the quotidian seem compelling. . . .Whether he s writing about a rainstorm ( the sound of thun­der always heightens the sense of being alive ) or teeth ( miniature white towers in the mouth ), the scrutiny Knausgaard applies to everyday objects renews them for the reader. Bookpage 

I got through book two of My Struggle, which became my insomnia go-to; Karl Ove Knausgaard s account of becoming a father and at the same time a writer I found deeply affecting, especially as these bolts of bliss burst through his usual overcast of melancholy. I also loved Autumn, his book of short essays about the eruptions of wonder in everyday life. What s great about liking Knausgaard is you can be sure there s always more where that came from. Michael Pollan

Om høsten
28 August. Now, as I write this, you know nothing about anything, about what awaits you, the kind of world you will be born into. And I know nothing about you. I have seen an ultrasound image and have laid my hand on the belly in which you are lying, that is all. Six months remain until you will be born, and anything at all can happen during that time, but I believe that life is strong and indomitable, I think you will be fine, and that you will be born sound and healthy and strong. See the light of day, the expression goes. It was night outside when your eldest sister, Vanja, was born, the darkness filled with swirling snow. Just before she came out, one of the midwives tugged at me, You catch, she said, and so I did, a tiny child slipped out into my hands, slippery as a seal. I was so happy I cried. When Heidi was born one and a half years later, it was autumn and overcast, cold and damp as October can be, she came out during the morning, labour was rapid, and when her head had emerged but not yet the rest of her body, she made a little sound with her lips, it was such a joyous moment. John, as your big brother is called, came out in a cascade of water and blood, the room had no windows, it felt like we were inside a bunker, and when I went out afterwards to call his two grandparents, I was surprised to see the light outside, and that life flowed on as if nothing in particular had happened. It was 15 August 2007, it may have been five or six o'clock in the afternoon, in Malm , where we had moved the previous summer. Later that evening we drove to a patient hotel, and the day after I went to pick up your sisters, who amused themselves greatly by placing a green rubber lizard on top of John's head. They were three and a half and nearly two years old at the time. I took photos, one day I'll show them to you.
That's how they saw the light of day. Now they are big, now they are used to the world, and the strange thing is that they are so unalike, each of them has a personality entirely their own, and they always did, right from the start. I assume that's how it will be with you too, that you already are the person you will become.
Three siblings, a mother and a father, that's us. That's your family. I mention it first because it's what matters most. Good or bad, warm or cold, strict or indulgent, it doesn't matter, this is the most important thing, these are the relationships through which you will come to view your world, and which will shape your understanding of almost everything, directly or indirectly, both in the form of resistance and of support.
Just now, these past few days, we are fine. While the children were at school today, your mother and I went to Limhamn, and at a caf there, in the late summer heat - today was absolutely marvellous, sun, blue sky, with the faintest hint of autumn in the air, and every colour seemed deep but also bright - we discussed what we are going to call you. I had suggested Anne, if you turn out to be a girl, and now Linda said she really liked the name, there is something light and sunny about it, and that is a quality we want to be associated with you. If you are a boy, your name, we suggested, will be Eirik. Then your name will have the same sound in it as the names of all your three siblings - y - for if you say them out loud, they all have it - Vanja (Vanya), Heidi (Heydi), John (Yonn).
They are asleep now, all four of them. I am sitting in my study, which is actually a little house with two rooms and a loft, looking out across the lawn towards the house where they are lying, the dark windowpanes which would be invisible if not for the street lamps across the road a
