by Hallgrímur Helgason, Iceland.
Spending her teen years living by her wits alone in war-torn Europe while her father fought on the side of the Nazis, Herra Björnsson moved Zelig-like through the major locales and events of the twentieth century, loving and losing men, kissing a Beatle, weathering the financial crash, mastering the internet. Now, eighty years old, as she lies dying alone in a garage in Reykjavik, she tells her story of luck and betrayal as only she can, with the bawdy, uncompromising spirit of a true survivor. 
Paperback, 400pp. 2018
