  • A profound (and profoundly eclectic) collection of essays

    Daily Telegraph, *Summer Reads of 2021*
  • A modern Roland Barthes... Knausgaard has a gift for stopping the reader in their tracks with an unexpected, casual profundity

    Steven Poole, Daily Telegraph
  • With this piece, Knausgaard has achieved what he elsewhere says he hopes to do as a novelist, which is to relay his experience as honestly as he can, gambling that it will somehow be universal. Here...he has diagnosed an entire modern psyche... Against which, true thinkers and writers, such as Knausgaard, are our only hope

    Steven Poole, Daily Telegraph
  • Clear, elegant, dense and engrossing... Even hardened Knausgaard sceptics...should find something to admire here; and fans will be thrilled

    Lucy Atkins, Sunday Times
  • Perceptive and inspiring

    Simon Humphreys, Mail on Sunday
