* Karl Ove Knausgaard’s dazzling new novel, The Morning Star, is available to pre-order now *

This is a book about leaving your wife and everything you know.

It is about fresh starts, about love, about friendship. It is also about the earth-shattering experience of becoming a father, the mundane struggles of family life, ridiculously unsuccessful holidays, humiliating antenatal music classes, fights with quarrelsome neighbours, the emotional strains of childrens’ birthday parties and pushing a pram around Stockholm when all you really want to do is write.

This is a book about one man’s life but, somehow, about everyone else’s too.
