For readers of: A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman, The 100-Year-Old-Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson, Rachel Joyce’s The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, and Gabrielle Zevin’s The Storied Life of AJ Fikry.
In the tradition of widowers who go on epic adventures, curmudgeonly misunderstood men who find love in unexpected places, and little old ladies who commit white collar crimes for a better quality of late life, comes a new loveable, floundering protagonist in the midst of a mid-life crisis who wants to forego it all but can’t seem to even get that right.
Olafsdottir’s English debut novel The Greenhouse (AmazonCrossing), sold over 100,000 ebooks; it won the DV Cultural Prize for literature and was nominated for the Nordic Council Prize, the Prix Femina, and Prix FNAC.
Olafsdottir is a masterful writer in that she brings both humor and lightheartedness as well as incredible complexity and insight to her work.
Depicts in intimate detail the difficulty of rebuilding a small town in an unnamed war-torn region. It is a deeply-felt portrait of human suffering and courage.

The formation of a scar is a natural part of the biological process, which occurs when a lesion to the skin or other body tissue grows after an accident, illness, or surgery. Since the body is unable to create an exact replica of the damaged tissue, the fresh tissue grows with a new texture and properties that differ from the undamaged skin around it.

The navel is our centre or core and by that we mean the centre of the universe. It is a scar that no longer serves a purpose.
