Reviews

  • "Diverse and delightful… These sharp little essays capture the wonder of things with photographic immediacy… This is an inspiring, surprising collection"

    The Times
  • "Brilliantly conveys the sense you get, as a prospective parent, that the world is brand new… It’s all beautifully done."

    William Leith, Evening Standard
  • "In Autumn, a lyrical cabaret beside the grand opera of the My Struggle books, taboo memories and forbidden feelings disrupt the grown-up project of a compendium of fatherly wisdom... Autumn glows with a radiant attachment to 'the world, as it is'... From sunshine to head-lice, it celebrates the 'dizzying intensity of being'."

    The Economist
  • "Quietly illuminates Knausgaard's profound gift for making the reader see the world in fresh and unpredictable ways."

    Stuart Evers, The Observer
  • "This book is full of wonders… Loose teeth, chewing gum, it all becomes noble, almost holy, under Knausgaard’s patient, admiring gaze. The world feels repainted."

    Parul Sehgal, New York Times
