Abstract: A well known result of Privalov asserts that if $f$ is a function which is analytic in the unit disc $\Delta =\{z\in \mathbb {C} : \vert z\vert <1\} $, then $f$ has a continuous extension to the closed unit disc and its boundary function $f(e\sp {i\theta })$ is absolutely continuous if and only if $f\sp {\prime }$ belongs to the Hardy space $H\sp {1}$. In this paper we prove that this result is sharp in a very strong sense. Indeed, if, as usual, $M_{1}(r, f\sp {\prime })= \frac {1}{2\pi }\int _{-\pi }\sp {\pi }\left \vert f\sp {\prime }(re\sp {i\theta }) \right \vert \, d\theta ,$ we prove that for any positive continuous function $\phi $ defined in $(0, 1)$ with $\phi (r)\to \infty $, as $r\to 1$, there exists a function $f$ analytic in $\Delta $ which is not a normal function and with the property that $M_{1}(r, f\sp {\prime })\leq \phi (r) $, for all $r$ sufficiently close to $1$.
