Lunch Break: Come Together

Screenshot 2015-02-12 12.57.35Here’s a post about Karl Ove Knausgaard and the Beatles. Come Together is an excerpt from Knausgaard’s My Struggle: Book Three, Boyhood.

It is the story of a first love, sort of, and gives a good idea of the flavor of these books.

The Beatles song that’s quoted in the story and gives it its name is one of my favorites from the band’s later period.

The recording is the studio version, even though it is cut to live visuals.

The story ends citing a tune called No Way Back (Ingen Vei Tilbake) by the Norwegian band, The Aller Værste. Here’s a live version of the song, from 1980, which is about the time when the story takes place. You can listen (and sing) along when you get to that part.
