"Spring features Knausgaard unbound, writing for the first time without a gimmick or the crutch of extravagant experimentation...Fall in love with the world, he enjoins, stay sensitive to it, stay in it."
-The New York Times

Poignant and beautiful...Even if you think you wont like Knausgaard, try this one and youll get him and get why some of us have gone crazy for him.

--Los Angeles Review of Books

You dont know what air is, and yet you breathe. You dont know what sleep is, yet you sleep. You dont know what night is, yet you lie in it. You dont know what a heart is, yet your own heart beats steadily in your chest, day and night, day and night, day and night.

So begins Spring, the recommencement of Knausgaards fantastic and spellbinding literary project of assembling a personal encyclopedia of the world addressed directly to his newly born daughter. But here Knausgaard must also tell his daughter the story of what happened during the time when her mother was pregnant, and explain why he now has to attend appointments with child services. In order to keep his daughter safe, he must tell a terrible story, one which unfolds with acute psychological suspense over the course of a single day.

Utterly gripping and brilliantly rendered in Knausgaards famously sensitive, pensive, and honest style, Spring is the account of a shocking and heartbreaking familial trauma and the emotional epicenter of this singular literary series.
