Karl Ove Knausgård: Min Kamp 3



Nk this characterization fits because so many times as the boys sat in the house alone waiting for their father to arrive the tension felt like a ship anticipating a storm Darkness would descend and a hard madness would hit and then just as fast disappear The prose was beautiful and in parts seemed heavy enough to bleed the heavy dark prose straight through the thick pages f the archipelago book In many ways the third volume Culture is the Body: The Theatre Writings of Tadashi Suzuki of Karl Ove Knausgaard s fiercely debated memoir is the smallest in both its scope and in its physical size and
