“Perhaps the most significant literary enterprise of our time…” — The Guardian

Karl Ove Knausgaard  has crafted one of the most distinctive literary styles of our time. With uncompromising attention to detail and the workings of memory, Knausgaard’s six-volume autobiographical novel, My Struggle, is a major artistic achievement. Come celebrate the long-awaited release of Book Five in the English translation at this, Knausgaard’s first-ever visit to Chicago.
