"The writing glows with an intense awareness of the here and now, and loving observations of landscapes and objects...this is an extraordinary novel, and completely original."--"The Independent"
"The most original and promising Norwegian writer of his generation." --"Adresseavisen"
"Knausgaard joins the ranks of the greatest storytellers of our time."--"Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung"
Antinous Bellori, a boy of eleven, loses his way in the woods in the mountains behind his home. Unseen, he stumbles upon two glowing beings, an event that leads him to devote the rest of his life to the study of angels. Bellori reinterprets moments throughout the Bible where men confront angels: the expulsion from the garden, Cain and Abel, Lot in Sodom, Noah's isolation before the flood, Ezekiel's visions. . . . Through his profound glimpses, Karl Knausgaard--an extraordinary storyteller and thinker--explores with spellbinding insight how the nature and roles of these intermediaries between man and the divine have shifted throughout history.
