The Morning Star, by Karl Ove Knausgaard

Staff Pick

 

Departing from his signature autofictional mode, Knausgaard follows nine loosely connected characters whose daily lives are interrupted by the appearance of a bright new star in the sky. As the quotidian collides with the wonder and horror of the fantastic--especially the series of eerie events the astral phenomenon ushers in--each begins to question the nature of their existence, their precarius faith, and even whether life has any inherent meaning. Read in the context of the ongoing pandemic, the novel is a remarkable exploration of human experience in the face of something overwhelming.
