Life in The Pits has become pretty boring for Timmy Truskett. He has no friends, lives in a shabby house in run-down part of town with his alcoholic father, and spends much of his time on his own. Having lost his mother at an early age, he has been ridiculed by children and adults alike for as long as he can remember. He longs for an existence where he can be accepted by others for who he is, not for the type of clothes he wears or the area that he is from. Approaching his 13th birthday, something extraordinary happens to him, something that will thrust him into a world beyond his belief, and one in which there appears little or no chance of escape. He will be exposed to many emotions that he has never experienced before. He will have to work out who to trust, who to listen to, and more importantly, who can help him in his mission to escape. He will be exposed to immense danger, love, hate, jealousy, greed and above all, will have to make choices that someone his age should never have to make on their own, and have a strong belief in himself and his new friends in order to get back to his old world, which all of a sudden doesnt seem as bad as it was. With the help of some intriguing characters, such as the talking birds and the dwarfs, he finds out that this is no ordinary place. It is a place where the unbelievable becomes believable, and the impossible become possible. Does he have the courage and the will to stand up for himself in a world where there are many rules, and the children are watched over day and night? He soon discovers that there is more to life than he had ever imagined, and maybe, just maybe, it was his chance to show everyone he was not the type of boy to be ridiculed.

Das eigene Leben offen, schonungslos und radikal zum Gegenstand des Schreibens zu machen – dies ist das Konzept, zu dem sich Karl Ove Knausgård in einem furiosen Mammutprojekt entschlossen hat. Radikal ehrlich und mit unglaublicher sprachlicher Kraft nähert er sich in »Sterben«, dem ersten Roman einer sechsbändigen Serie, seinem schwierigen Verhältnis zum Vater, das ihn grundlegend geprägt hat. Als dieser stirbt und er sich mit seinem Bruder daran macht, den Nachlass zu ordnen, bietet sich beiden ein Bild des Grauens. Während sie das Haus reinigen und die Beerdigung vorbereiten, kommen Erinnerungen hoch. Nach und nach entsteht so das Porträt eines Mannes, über den sich in der Kindheit das Gleichgewicht der Familie definierte und den die beiden Söhne unsäglich zu hassen lernten. So sehr hat dieser Vater einen Schatten auf das Leben der Brüder geworfen, dass sie den Bestatter bitten, die Leiche sehen zu dürfen. Erst dann, so sind sich beide einig, werden sie glauben können, dass er wirklich tot ist. Der Sog, der von Knausgårds direkter Art des Erzählens schon mit den ersten Sätzen ausgeht, macht seinen Roman zu einer faszinierenden und erschütternden Lektüre. Gerade weil er so radikal persönlich schreibt, gewinnt sein Text eine schmerzliche Allgemeingültigkeit. Selten ist in einem Stück Literatur so greif- und fühlbar geworden, was jeder Mensch ist: ein einmaliger und unerschöpflicher innerer Kosmos.
