[Jón Gnarr] Á Indjáninn [south-sudan PDF] Ebook Epub Download Ö Although I d seen a few episodes of J n Gnarr s comedy series Night Shift Naeturvaktin, it seemed at first that this wouldn t be enough to maintain my interest in this simply written autobiography part 1 of a trilogy I d picked up what felt like a celebrity memoir with a plain style and short chapters to appeal to a wide audience, written as a child narrator perhaps also structured this way because of the author s ADHD and his openness about it Other reviews indicate that the sort of details of childhood related here in unadorned fashion, to the readers who pick up a Deep Vellum book expecting the experimental, might only be interesting when you re a fan or friend of the person doing the telling This is how I felt for the first 20% or so I nevertheless admired his courage in pl I had high hopes J n Gnarr is widely appreciated in Iceland and is apparently a warm, entertaining character, but I found his memoir too dull to finish The Indian seems to be his answer to Knausgaard it s the first of a trilogy , detailing his troubled childhood as a boy with ADHD and other learning impediments His short chapters are interspersed with notes and dim diagnoses from various psychiatric institutions, but even this narrative novelty doesn t dispel the tedium. ,.
The second read of my four book Deep Vellum haul from AWP and my first ever read from Gnarr or any Icelander, for that matter I was really entertained by this one It s a really engaging, dynamic, vaguely Faulkner esque narrative in the vein of The Sound an the Fury, kinda sorta a little bit Gnarr blends humor with youthful tragedy beautifully in this piece and the juxtaposition of depth and simplicity in the narration will surprise you It s an excellently written piece that I highly recommend. 1967 . read Lytton Smith s first draft of the translation to this on the flight back from Europe yesterday, and I cannot wait to publish it in Spring 2015 As a Psychiatrist I found this book to be amazing I loved the juxtaposition between his experience and the excerpts before each chapter from various Psychiatrists This is the best first person account of the real neuro biological differences that children with serious learning differences have This is a bittersweet story but Gnarr s genius is in how he keeps the tone victorious I loved this book.
