Die elfjährige Ellen lebt in einer hellen Familie. So betont es die Mutter, eine erfolgreiche, lebenslustige Schauspielerin. Wenn sie zu Hause ihren Unterricht hält, müssen die Türen geschlossen sein, und sie genießt ihre eigene Welt am Theater. Auch der große Bruder verbarrikadiert sich in seinem Zimmer, hört laute Musik und hat eine erste Freundin. Die Zeit ausgelassener Eishockeyspiele in der Diele der großen Wohnung ist vorbei, erst recht, als der Vater stirbt. Nach der Trennung der Eltern war er aggressiv geworden, und Ellen hat seinen Tod so sehr herbeigewünscht, dass sie nun aus Angst über die Macht ihrer Gedanken verstummt. Mit ihrem Schweigen schützt sie die dunkle Wahrheit ihres Ichs und fordert die Mutter zu einem Kräftemessen heraus. Mit WILLKOMMEN IN AMERIKA ist Linda Boström Knausgård ein dichtes, poetisches Kammerspiel gelungen, ein Roman über Kunst und Macht aus der magischen Perspektive eines Kindes, der einen unwiderstehlichen Sog entwickelt.
