about this item
The Outlaw describes the harsh world of Jón Gnarr's late teenage years and wrestles with painful, bleak memories of this troubled stage of his life, physically abused and surrounded by suicides. He uses punk music to cope, but also discovers an interest in girls and ponders philosophical questions of right and wrong and how to be true to himself. The dark final volume in former Reykjavík mayor's childhood memoir-trilogy delves into the brutal, relentless despair of his late teens.
Jón Gnarr is one of Iceland's most well-known actors and comedians, and became an international celebrity as the former mayor of Reykjavík, Iceland.
