A Time for Everything: a book by Karl Knausgaard
This is a massively awesome, sprawling novel about human nature. It’s told through fictionalized old testament stories, with an emphasis on angels and their bafflingly mysterious role between humans and god. It’s a clear piece of art that is unpredictable and nuanced. It was first published in 2004 in the original Norwegian, but was published in translation by Archipelago in 2009.
