A Brief Line or Two on Knausgaard . . .

Karl Ove Knausgaard

The writer Garth Risk Hallberg - in a NYT review ("Pathways to Perception," September 23-24) of Karl Ove Knausgaard's Autumn - informs us that in the six-volume autobiographical novel My Struggle:
Knausgaard's abandonment of literary conceit is itself a literary conceit . . .
But then adds:
. . . albeit one of a higher order.
The review of Autumn is also mostly positive, and this entire blogpost would make more sense if I could provide a link to the review, but there seems to be no online version . . .

I could be even briefer.... Knausgaard's work does not deserve your precious reading time.

Thanks. I wonder why it's being hyped.
