Summary
"In book six, Knausgaard grapples directly with the consequences of his transgressive blurring of public and private. His vulnerabilities and ambitions are exposed. Book Six depicts life in all its complexities, from the painful fallout surrounding the publication of the earlier volumes, to the emotional balm that his close friends provide, to the vivid texture of his days as he faces a marital crisis with his children around him. The book is an exploration of literature itself and of the profound -and at times startling- connection between writer and reader. Kausgaard also includes a lengthy contemplation of Hitler and his Mein Kampf, which not only directly confronts the implications of his own work's title but feels particularly relevant (if not prescient) amid rising public support for authoritarianism globally."--Inside dust jacket
