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 is the early 1970s and the family’s trajectory is
upwardly mobile: the future seems limitless. In painstaking,
sometimes self-lacerating detail, Karl Ove 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. Perhaps the most
Proustian in the series, My Struggle: Book 3 gives us
Knausgaard’s vivid, technicolor recollections of childhood,
his emerging self-understanding, and the multilayered nature
of time’s passing, memory, and existence.
