From this New York Times bestselling author comes a collection of ambitious, remarkably erudite essays on art, literature, culture, and philosophy.

In the Land of the Cyclops is a collection of thirty-seven essays by Karl Ove Knausgaard. In these pieces, he discusses Swedish politics, brain surgery, Laurie Anderson, Edvard Munch, the northern lights, and the work of an array of writers and visual artists (paired with full colour images of their art). These essays beautifully capture Knausgaard’s ability to mediate between the deeply personal and the universal, demonstrating his trademark self-scrutiny and his deep longing to authentically see, understand, and experience the world.

Story Locale: New York, Oslo, London, among others

“GREATEST HITS” COLLECTION: This is the best of the best of KOK’s non-fiction output since the ’90s. A one-stop shop for anyone interested in entering the oeuvre of this famous international voice.

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.

KARL OVE KNAUSGAARD’s first novel, Out of the World, was the first ever debut novel to win The Norwegian Critics’ Prize and his second, A Time to Every Purpose Under Heaven, was widely acclaimed. A Death in the Family, the first of the My Struggle cycle of novels, was awarded the prestigious Brage Award. The My Struggle cycle has been heralded as a masterpiece wherever it appears.

“[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
