Reviews

[It is] fascinating, insightful... Engrossing. -- Nick Rennison * Sunday Times *
Home and Away is deeply intelligent, enjoyable and sometimes funny. -- Simon Kuper * Financial Times, Book of the Year *
An entirely engrossing exchange of ideas, affection and memory... [A] genuinely engaging two-hander of real affection and insight. -- Barney Ronay * Literary Review *
Knausgaard is a writer with an astonishing ability to elevate the prosaic... As a reading experience, Home and Away is diverting, indulgent and stealthily enjoyable. Just as it probably was to write. * Esquire, Book of the Year *
At its core, Home and Away is a story about two men doing what they can to keep a friendship afloat, even from continents away. * New Yorker *
