The Pirate by Jón Gnarr

The second installment in a semi-fictional trilogy recounting the troubled childhood of comedian and former Reykjavik mayor, Jón Gnarr, The Pirate chronicles his teenage years with sincere compassion and great humor.

Bullied constantly, young Jón takes refuge in the rebellion of punk rock music and anarchy—offering the promise of a better and more exciting life.
