Multcolib My Librarian Lisa: Eclectic Iceland (with a bit of Britain, too)
Annotation:This irreverent memoir is a story not simply of struggle but also of redemption, a testament to the difficulty of discovering what you want from life and the remarkable power of a bloody-minded determination to get it. My Booky Wook is a giddy trip through the brilliant mind of one of Britain's most valuable exports.
Annotation:Call the genre whatever you want (art-rock, post-rock, experimental, ambient, downright tasty), Iceland's Sigur Rós is one of the best bands of the current generation. Big claim, I know, but Kveikur only solidifies the band's stature as one of the genre's best. If you like Sigur Rós, go ahead and pick this record up.
Annotation:A rising comedian describes with humor the absurdity of his troubled youth in Oakland, California, where his mother walked him on a leash until he chewed through it and ran away and started taking drugs at age twelve.
Annotation:Yrsa will stun readers once again with this out-of-this-world ghost story that will leave you shivering. In an isolated village in the Icelandic Westfjords, three friends set to work renovating a rundown house. But soon, they realize they are not as alone as they thought.
Annotation:My Booky Wook was one of the most revered and successful celebrity autobiographies of all time (not including the Bible or anything by Oprah). The honesty, mayhem, and scandal made it as riveting and fanciful as anything found in fiction.In Booky Wook 2, this award-winning achievement is surpassed as Russell charts his rise from crack-house junky to Hollywood star, indulging in sexual excesses that make Caligula seem like a prudish spinster.
