Autumn Overview

This collection of short essays by Norwegian author Karl Ove Knausgaard considers both the function and the meaning of everyday objects and experiences. The subjects of his contemplation range from art to toilet bowls, from vomit to ambulances, and from trees to houseflies. As he and his writings explore these various aspects of everyday life, the collection also considers parent/child relationships, the nature and value of art, and the meaning of interactions between the individual and the environment.
