How to be a good father? Children&apos;s birthday parties, unsuccessful family holidays, humiliating antenatal music classes: the trials of parenthood are all found in Knausgaard&apos;s compelling and honest account of family life. Contrasting moments of enormous love and tenderness towards his children with the boring struggles of domesticity, this is one father&apos;s personal experience, and somehow, every father&apos;s too. Selected from the book A Man in Love by Karl Ove Knausgaard. VINTAGE MINIS: GREAT MINDS. BIG IDEAS. LITTLE BOOKS. A series of short books by the world&apos;s greatest writers on the experiences that make us human.
