  • Johan Harstad’s Buzz Aldrin reviewed in Three Percent

    Johan Harstad’s Buzz Aldrin reviewed in Three Percent

    July 22, 2011

    "With the advent of YouTube, it seems any ten-year-old with a half-decent voice is on the fast track to virtual fame. . . . Which is perhaps what makes the hero of Norwegian author Johan Harstad’s Buzz Aldrin so refreshing and fascinating: He shies away from fame or recognition of any sort. . . . we follow this man who wishes not to be followed, tracing him through Harstad’s delectably light but nonetheless impactful prose. . . . The novel’s finest moments wrap you up in communion with Mattias, as if you are spending a quiet afternoon with an old friend, chatting but mostly thinking. Something makes you want the book, like its narrator, to slip quietly into the forgotten with the crunching of time, to be something that you managed to touch at one point but exists somewhere unattainably, contentedly." -- Kelsey Burritt, Three Percent
