Karl Ove Knausgaard
In Spring, the third volume of the Seasons quartet, we follow Karl Ove and his three-month-old daughter, Anna, over the course of one day in April, from sunrise to sunset: a day filled with routine, the beginnings of life and its light, but also its deep struggles and its darkness.
In Spring, one of the world's most beguiling literary artists celebrates the greatness of the everyday — the beautiful and the painful — and the big things that hide behind the smallest events in all our lives.
Whereas the first two books in Knausgaard's sublime Seasons series are comprised of short texts — sightings of things and places, associations and reflections related to nature and the material world — Spring is a narrative memoir that reads like a short novel. Emotionally captivating, it is the most accessible of all his books for new Karl Ove readers keen to enter into his writing, while also deeply moving for his devoted readers. (From Knopf Canada)
