NEW PHASE IN THE KNAUSGAARD PUBLISHING SAGA: The Struggle has ended. The Seasons have passed. After a decade of publishing two acclaimed and unique multi-volume series, In the Land of the Cyclops is a honed, accessible, single-volume compendium.
STRONG PUBLISHING PARTNERS: We will be working closely with Karl Ove’s UK (Harvill Secker) and US (Archipelago) publishers to bring his acclaimed work to the English-language market in the best possible way, as such a contemporary master of world literature deserves.
“[W]elcome to the world of Knausgaard, where seemingly no thought goes unexamined, no connection unfollowed, no moment unexpressed…. Knausgaard’s writing is fueled by a creative nerve, a willingness to go there, which is everywhere…. [His] willingness to grapple with art…[is] refreshing in its honesty. His willingness to bore…down into any moment, thought, or artwork, offers its own thrilling spectacle. You don’t want to look away.” —Hyperallergic (New York)
“Reviewers of My Struggle frequently praised Knausgaard’s essayistic talent, and readers who enjoyed the novel’s digressions on, say, Dostoyevsky or Paul Celan will find here the same mingling of critical and personal reflection.” —The New York Times Book Review
“[Knausgaard’s] intense focus, formidable command of reference and tendency to see the interconnectedness of things make for highly stimulating, almost overwhelming reading…. [I]n Cyclops we find Knausgaard’s life illustrating and informing his critical judgments…[to] give the essays the same semblance of radical honesty that radiates through his fiction…. [T]hese essays repay slow reading and retain considerable power to surprise.” —The Washington Post
