About the book

The future is no more, and eternity has begun.

It is 1986 and Syvert L??yning has returned from military service to his mother's home in southern Norway. One night, he dreams of his late father, and the next morning can't shake him from his mind. Searching through his father's belongings for clues and connections, Syvert finds a cache of letters that leads to the Soviet Union.

In present-day Russia, Alevtina Kotov, a biologist at Moscow State University, is travelling to celebrate her stepfather's eightieth birthday. Alevtina has always been curious and driven - but recently, tired and preoccupied with the care of her young son, she has felt adrift. Her friend Vasilisa offers some intellectual nourishment: she is writing a book about belief in eternal life. But it is a meeting with a visitor from Norway that will redraw the contours of Alevtina's immediate world, on the same weekend that a mysterious new star appears in the sky...

From internationally bestselling author Karl Ove Knausgaard, The Wolves of Eternity is the new book in a visionary series that begins with the 'epic' (Independent), 'symphonic' (New York Times) novel The Morning Star. Expansive, searching and deeply human, it questions the responsibilities we have toward one another and ourselves - and the limits of what we can understand about life itself.
