LoveStar, Icelandic science fiction, called “a seriously funny book” in The Village Voice

November 21, 2012

“It’s a smartly structured novel, written with feeling and fire. It’s a seriously funny book, but also a serious one, translated with raucous grace.”

Icelandic author Andri Magnason brings his absurd and hilarious storytelling to English readers for the first time with LoveStar, half satire of our blind acceptance of corporate control and half love story. In this world “howlers” pay back debts by impulsively shouting ads to passersby and the dead are no longer buried, but shot through the atmosphere like shooting stars.
