“Han spelade att han var döende när jag kom hem från jobbet”

Linda Boström Knausgård besöker IKEA i Red Hook på ett kliché-artat sätt, men ett citat sticker ut:

“He is really caring about his children, but he was bored being a full-time parent. He thought that he would like it, but he really didn’t. He would act like he was dying when I got home from work. The idea that he could not physically bear to spend time with his baby, that his writing was the only important thing—it hurt me.”
