An autobiographical story of childhood and family from the international sensation and bestseller, Karl Ove Knausgaard.

     
A family of four –-- mother, father and two boys –-- move to Sørland, to a new house on a new estate. It is the early 1970s, the children are small, the parents young and the future open. But at some point that future happens to them; at some point the future closes.

The third book of the My Struggle cycle is set in a world where children and adults live parallel lives, ones that never meet. With insight and honesty, Karl Ove Knausgaard writes of a child’'s growing self-awareness, of how events of the past impact on the present, and of the desire for other ways of living and other worlds within what we know.
