Join Deep Vellum Publishing for a lively discussion of our most recent book: the second installment of Jon Gnarr’s childhood memoir trilogy, The Pirate, hailed by the Dallas Morning News as “an Icelandic-punk version of Catcher in the Rye.”
The Pirate delves into Gnarr’s troubled adolescence, revisiting his teenage years with true compassion and a lot of humor: bullied relentlessly, young Jón receives rebellious inner strength through the Sex Pistols and Prince Kropotkin—punk rock and anarchy offer the promise of a better and more exciting life.
We’ll listen to the songs on Jón Gnarr’s Largehearted Boy playlist for the book. We will discuss anarchy in the UK, in Iceland, and in Dallas. There will be drinks and books and good times.
