My Struggle, Book One by Karl Ove Knausgaard

Staff Pick

Don't let the sheer bulk of this six-volume autobiographical novel keep you from enjoying one of the best voices in fiction today. The first book is a rewarding, accessible, and largely self-contained work that's easy to devour. Knausgaard creates an internal world that feels truly expansive in its beauty, pain, and humor. He has an extraordinary eye for the quotidian details of life that so often get glazed over in fiction. This skill, combined with a carefully digressive narrative style, allows him to create an epic from the personal.
