My struggle by Karl Ove Knausgård( Book )

212 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in 15 languages and held by 1,976 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The provocative, audacious, brilliant six-volume autobiographical novel that has unquestionably been the main event of contemporary European literature. It has earned favorable comparisons to its obvious literary forebears "A la recherche du temps perdu" and "Mein Kampf" but has been celebrated as the rare magnum opus that is intensely, addictively readable
My struggle. Boyhood by Karl Ove Knausgård( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A portrait of the artist as a young boy. On the heels of Book One and Two of the internationally celebrated autobiographical novel series My Struggle, Book Three finds us in the sensuous realm of Karl Ove's childhood. 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. We follow Karl Ove through bicycle expeditions, tense swim meets and locker rooms, girls, football pyromaniac pranks, and rock music in what seem like a traditional, if brutal, coming-of-age novel. In painstaking, sometimes self-lacerating detail, Knausgaard paints a world familiar to anyone who can recall the intensity and singularity of childhood experience, one in which children and adults lead parallel lives that never meet. Perhaps the most Proustian in the series, Book Three gives us Knausgaard's vivid, technicolor recollections of childhood, his emerging self-understanding, and the multilayered nature of time's passing, memory, and existence, all formed by the fear of his controlling, unpredictable, and omnipresent father"--

"The fifth book of Knausgaard's powerful My Struggle series is written with tremendous force and sincerity. As a nineteen-year-old, Karl Ove moves to Bergen and invests all of himself in his writing. But his efforts get the opposite effect - he wants it so much that he gets writer's block. At the same time, he sees his friends, one-by-one, publish their debuts. He suspects that he will never get anything published. Book Five is also a book about strong new friendships and a shattering love affair. Then one day Karl Ove reaches two crucial points in his life: his father dies, and shortly thereafter, he completes his first novel"--

Die eigene Identität muss mit Klauen verteidigt, die Liebe immer wieder neu gefunden werden. Ein Kraftakt, von dem Karl Ove Knausgård in seinem Roman>>Lieben<<voller Zärtlichkeit und mit entwaffnender Ehrlichkeit erzählt. Das radikale Vaterporträt seines umjubelten Vorgängerromans>>Sterben<<wird nun in>>Lieben<<ergänzt durch das kompromisslose Suchen nach Nähe und Beziehung

Es ist eine Zeit des Umbruchs und der Veränderungen. Das Abitur hat er in der Tasche, die Eltern haben sich getrennt, die Begegnungen mit dem Vater sind spannungsgeladen, die ersten Schritte hinein in ein selbstbestimmtes Leben begleitet von Alkoholräuschen, die der junge Karl Ove in seiner Not immer öfter sucht, weil er diese mit einem Gefühl von Freiheit verbindet - verheißen sie ihm doch Befreiung von all den Komplexen, Unsicherheiten und Nöten, die ihn plagen und noch lange Jahre plagen werden. Lebenslust sieht anders aus. Unschlüssig, was er mit seinem Leben beginnen soll, beschließt Knausgård ein Jahr als Aushilfslehrer an eine Dorfschule nach Nord-Norwegen zu gehen. Dabei wird er nicht nur mit Schülern konfrontiert, die ihn verständlicherweise als Autoritätsperson nicht ernstnehmen, sondern auch mit einer überwältigenden, für ihn ebenso neuen wie faszinierenden Natur. Bald bildet sich ein Lebensmuster heraus. Den Job erledigt er mit möglichst wenig Aufwand, danach versucht er sich mittels Schreibversuchen an der Etablierung einer Autorenidentität. An den Wochenende wird hemmungslos getrunken, wobei die älteren Kollegen keinerlei Versuche machen, ihren jugendlichen Aushilfslehrer zu mäßigen. Statt dessen trinken sie mit. Am Ende des Jahres steht die Rückkehr in südlichere Regionen an - und die Aufnahme an der neu gegründeten Akademie für Schreibkunst in Bergen ... Was war das für ein Jahr? Und inwiefern ist es exemplarisch für andere Anfänge? Für unseren Start ins Erwachsenenleben? Wer Knausgård liest, wird schnell gefangengenommen von eigenen Erinnerungen, die Fragen aufwerfen, die weit über eine gewöhnliche Lektüre hinausgehen

My struggle by Karl Ove Knausgård( Recording )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Almost ten years have passed since Karl Ove Knausgaard's father drank himself to death. Vulnerable and assailed by doubts, he is now embarking on a new novel. With an uncanny eye for detail, Knausgaard breaks down his own life story to its elementary particles, reliving memories, reopening wounds, and examining with candor the turbulence and the epiphanies that emerge from his own experience of fatherhood, the fallout in the wake of his father's death, and his visceral connection to music, art, and literature. Karl Ove's dilemmas strike nerves that give us raw glimpses of our particular moment in history as we witness what happens to the sensitive and churning mind of a young man trying--as if his very life depended on it--to find his place in the disjointed world around him
Spielen : Roman by Karl Ove Knausgård( Book )

25 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Karl Ove Knausgårds tredje roman innebærer en enorm litterær satsning, og er en stor bok i mer enn én forstand: Min kamp blir utgitt som seks romaner. De fem første bøkene er utkommet, den sjette utkommer høsten 2010. Femte bind av den selvbiografiske romanen Min kamp er skrevet med voldsom kraft og oppriktighet. Karl Ove flytter til Bergen for å gå på Skrivekunstakademiet. Det blir en gedigen skuffelse; han vil så mye, skjønner så lite, og får ingenting til. Med et tilsynelatende grunnløst pågangsmot fortsetter han likevel å skrive og lese. Flere av de han kjenner, blir antatt og debuterer som forfattere, og han begynner å tenke at han selv i beste fall kan bli en habil litteraturskribent, men ikke kunstner. Gradvis endrer skrivingen seg. Forholdet til verden rundt ham endrer seg også. Slik blir dette en roman om nye, sterke vennskap, og et alvorlig, omskakende kjærlighetsforhold, inntil romanen igjen når frem til det eksistensielle omdreinings-punktet som kanskje er den avgjørende impulsen for romanserien: faren dør, Karl Ove debuterer som forfatter og alt bryter sammen

Necks by Thomas Wågström( Book )

3 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Necks collects in a beautifully produced volume tender portraits of more than 50 necks, all of different ages and characters, taken by Swedish photographer Thomas Wågström (born 1955). Normally in the background, in the shadow of the face--precisely not the focus of a portrait--the back of the neck here receives the camera's full attention. Smooth and wrinkled, slim and thick, freckled and unblemished, each neck as revealed in Wågström's gorgeous black-and-white photographs seems to evoke something of the body and experiences of its subject. Acclaimed writer Karl Ove Knausgård (author of My Struggle) contributes an essay about our most vulnerable yet unchangeable body part. 'A neck is in time, belongs to time, but is not formed by it,' writes Knausgård. 'If these photos could have been taken ten thousand years ago, they would have looked the same.'"--
