Nordic Book Club: The Pirate by Jón Gnarr (NYC)

Read and discuss Scandinavian literature in translation as part of Nordic Book Club – ASF’s newest literary series.

The second installment in a semi-fictional trilogy recounting the troubled childhood of comedian and former Reykjavik mayor, Jón Gnarr, The Pirate chronicles his teenage years with sincere compassion and great humor.

 Bullied constantly, young Jón takes refuge in the rebellion of punk rock music and anarchy—offering the promise of a better and more exciting life.

Join us for a lively discussion on the last Tuesday of every month in the Halldór Laxness Library at Scandinavia House.
