Profound is certainly a word to describe this marvelous novel by Einar Már Guðmundsson. Published in 1982 it marked the beginning of a remarkable writing career that has made Einar as one of the most celebrated Nordic authors. The story of the small boys, as seen through the eyes of a six year old living in suburban Reykjavík is captivating, homorous and ... yes, profound. Translated by Bernard Scudder.
