Moonstone: The Boy Who Never Was
Sjón — renowned poet and occasional Björk collaborator — introduces Máni Steinn, his most daring character to date. Unrepentantly flamboyant and queer, Máni navigates life on the fringes of 1918 Reykjavik. Facing the apocalyptic threats of Spanish Flu, the eruption of Katla, and the Great War, Máni must decide if he will engage with a society that shuns him, or disappear into his inner world. Sjón’s raucous and colorful tribute to his uncle is heartfelt and pregnant, every word a sprawling epic unto itself.
