101 Reykjavik by Hallgrimur Helgason

101 Reykjavik

Hallgrimur Helgason

The story of a thirty-something unemployed Icelandic male. He lives with his mother and her lesbian lover. Into recreational drugs, cable T.V., smoking and masturbation. Kept waiting for the plot to start.

Extract

The sky is nicotine yellow. Mouldering clouds, sour rain, if it were raining. Stale polluted air. A stagnant lumpy gungy sea. Like everything on its last days.
