Critic Reviews

“[It is] fascinating, insightful... Engrossing.”

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 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 An entirely engrossing exchange of ideas, affection and memory... [A] genuinely engaging two-hander of real affection and insight. -- Barney Ronay Literary Review Home and Away is deeply intelligent, enjoyable and sometimes funny. -- Simon Kuper Financial Times, Book of the Year [It is] fascinating, insightful... Engrossing. -- Nick Rennison Sunday Times
