There seems to be a tiny bit of confusion so here’s the deal:
2. However, Archipelago started publishing Knausgaard before this agreement was made, so they actually did a paperback of Book 1, which has since been discontinued.
3. Yes, the FSG covers are ugly as fuck. True fact: I’ve never met anyone who liked them. In fact, I’ve never met anyone who didn’t violently hate them. If anyone can explain them to us, please enlighten us. (Apologies to the designer, whom I’m sure is a very hard-working and very accomplished individual who has done lots of great work and will continue to do great work in the future. But everyone I’ve ever spoken to about these covers can’t be wrong.)
