Reviews

"Kirkus Reviews"

An uproarious, sharp, and outrageously funny joyride with plenty of octane.
Julie Myerson

"The Guardian"

This lusciously deadpan narrative is infused with a wild, anarchic take on the world that is caustically, worryingly truthful.
Chuck Klosterman

Author of "Fargo Rock City"

"101 ReykjavIk" is more proof that Iceland is a lot like Austin, Texas, in 1992, or Olympia, Washington, in 1988, or Athens, Georgia, in 1982. More important, it answers a question that has plagued man for centuries: "How much should one pay in order to have sex with Bjork?"
