Synopsis

Karl Ove Knausgaard's My Struggle series broke new ground in fiction. In the Land of the Cyclops is his first collection of full-length essays to be published in English, and these brilliant and wide-ranging pieces meditate on themes familiar from his fiction.



Collected here is a selection of his writing on everything from his intense and intensely personal readings of literature, philosophy and art, to the limits on privacy, how we view ourselves and the world, and how our daily and creative lives intertwine.
