Here are some Lego dioramas of scenes from Karl Ove Knausgaard’s My Struggle
by Simon Reichley
Have you been putting off reading all five published volumes of Karl Ove Knausgaard‘s titanic and oddly controversial My Struggle series?
Not to worry, because now you don’t have to! An enterprising Instagrammer/Lego-artist has (presumably) read them for you and perfectly converted the novels into tastefully filtered digital photographs.
Each one of those books is, like, several hundred pages long. So, that’s a lot of romantic anxiety and adolescent/young-adult/middle-aged angst to distill into pictures, but as far as I can tell, it’s all there: salted fish, shower-sex, alcohol-induced existential despair, the whole shebang! No reading required.
