"A family of four--mother, father and two boys--move to the South Coast of Norway to a new house on a newly developed site. It's the early 1970s and the family's trajectory: upwardly mobile. The future seems limitless. In painstaking, sometimes self-lacerating detail, Knausgaard paints a world familiar to anyone who can recall the intensity and novelty of childhood experience, one in which children and adults lead parallel lives that never meet"--Dust jacket.

This is my favorite Karl Ove volume - so far. I wish that teens today might read it to gain the insight Karl Ove provides in retrospective. His writing is so fresh and vivid - readers will be especially captivated by this volume of his life. The pain of living with a difficult father and a spaced-out mom. So many moments.
