Karl Ove Knausgaard explores the day to day realities of fatherhood in the ultimate literary gift for dads.
How to be a good father?
Children’s birthday parties, unsuccessful family holidays, humiliating antenatal music classes: the trials of parenthood are all found in Knausgaard’s compelling and honest account of family life. Contrasting moments of enormous love and tenderness towards his children with the boring struggles of domesticity, this is one father’s personal experience, and somehow, every father’s too.
Selected from the book A Man in Love by Karl Ove Knausgaard
