"Two world-class writers reveal themselves to be the ultimate soccer fans in these collected letters Karl Ove Knausgaard is sitting at home in Skåne with his wife, four small children, and dog. He is watching soccer on TV and falls asleep in front of the set. He likes 0-0 draws, cigarettes, coffee, and Argentina. Fredrik Ekelund is away, in Brazil, where he plays soccer on the beach and watches matches with others. Ekelund loves games that end up 4-3 and teams that play beautiful soccer. He likes caipirinhas and Brazil. Home and Away is an unusual soccer book, in which the two authors use soccer and the World Cup in Brazil as the arena for reflections on life and death, art and politics, class and literature. What does it mean to be at home in a globalized world? This exchange of letters opens up new vistas and gives us stories from the lives of two creative writers. We get under their skin and gain insight into their relationships with modern times and soccer's place in their lives, the significance the game has for people in general, and the question Was this the best soccer championship ever?"--… (mer)

Over voetbal, vriendschap en andere zaken van levensbelang. Het voetbal (over WK 2014) kon er mee door, maar het verdere pseudo-psychologische gereutel, vooral van Knausgard, kan van mij gestolen worden. Hondsvermoeiend............... ( )

Hey, hey, hey, how does an avid non-soccer fan like me end up reading a 400 page book of letters by two avid fans about the 2014 World Cup? Because one of them was my man, Karl Ove Knausgaard, and I knew he would be all over the map subject wise. Sure, there were abundant details about specific matches, players, and countries, but it quickly got personal and much more. So many times, they both seemed to use the soccer news as way to discuss so much more. The two of them ended up describing their lives, hopes, and dreams; as well as philosophy, politics, class, art, literature, and the ever-popular Scandinavian subject of life and death. This was an intelligent correspondence between two writers, one that knew few limitations.
From a personal viewpoint—the only one I have—all the soccer details are easily skimmed over, as I quickly moved on to the meat of the book. The relationship between Ekelund (a Swede) and Knausgaard (a Norwegian now living in Sweden) began years ago on a soccer field, with a pickup game of their own. The letters are friendly, humorous, and knowledgeable on so many subjects. The back and forth, question and answer, stepping stone format between them cleverly lead the letters to many fascinating points and discussions that nobody could predict. Ekelund watches games in Brazil (his favorite team, as they are explosive and take chances), while Knausgaard is mostly at home watching games on TV, and prefers a more technical, solid, and proven game. Their preferences in playing styles are reflected in their fascinating letters.
If I were a soccer fan, I would have been over the moon for this book. Still, it was a very interesting correspondence. Now, if only they were tennis fans … way over the moon! ( )

Oh my I just love love Knausgaard. Even when so much of the descriptions are of soccer and plays and players I've never heard of! But I do think Fredrik Ekelund, his co-author, should be mentioned above. After all the book is a series of letters between them. They are friends, and so in between their game commentary they talk of personal things: Knausgaard's children, Ekelund's teen-age depression, the ordinary but so beautifully described (on both their parts) quotidian details of their lives.

The time period of these letters made it especially meaningful for me. I sat in a living room from late June through mid-July with some Italians and my husband, all rabid soccer fans, waiting for my daughter to give birth to our granddaughter (who was born on one of the few days with no game), and then again in that living room with a newborn adorable little baby. Interesting to compare Italian, American, Norwegian, and Swedish (Ekelund) reactions to the various teams.

I just bought Home and Away for a friend who also writes beautifully about soccer. Maybe I can turn him into a Knausgaard fan.

I see Knausgaard has a new book coming out in August called "Autumn," but apparently we have to wait till 2018 for the English translation of the sixth and final book of My Struggle. ( )
