Wonderfully meandering book rooted in Keflavik, a small community trying to recover in the present from the departure of an American airbase and the sale of fishing rights. Stepping back into family histories of fishing, families and emigration, love stories and terrible losses. Peppered with philosophical musings on identity, motherhood and knowing each other, alongside the dark humour of the unlikeliest restaurant name, obsessions with Revolver and the power of teen love. Unlike anything else I've read. ( )
