Characters Indjáninn Summary ¸ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ´ Jón Gnarr Jón Gnarr ´ 9 Free download En jafnframt er hér brugðið upp ljóslifandi mynd af samfélagi áttunda áratugarins frá sjónarhorni barnsinsHöfundurinn Jón Gnarr borgarstjóri kallar Indjánann skáldaða ævisögu og segir í eftirmála sínum „Margir spyrja sig eflaust hvort þesssi bók sé ævisaga eða skáldsaga Hún er bæði Hún er ekki alveg sönn Það er þó engin bein lygi í henni?. Compulsively readable The first volume of the autobiographical trilogy by Reykjav k s former mayor actor and stand up comic Jon Gnarr is a deeply sensitive portrayal of what it s like to grow up an perpetual outsider Gnarr s account of undiagnosed ADHD is written in short clipped sentences that depict how bewildering the world can be for a kid with a severe learning disorder We see how Gnarr s longing just to fit in with his peers is frustrated by his inability to understand how to fit in Gnarr balances the tragedy of his young life remote parents a system that can t comprehend his problems physical and emotional abuse with darkly humorous passages He intersperses the first person narrative with transcripts written by an unnamed doctor who clinically studies analyzes and diagnosis him This juxtaposition of clinicalemotional is a successful gimmick The doctor cannot perceive Gnarr s inner life which although deeply damaged is rich with longing guilt hatred and loveBecause this volume is written from the point of view of a child much of it is devoted to Gnarr s lack of understanding He s groping for meaning to understand his limitations In the novel this usually results in violence acting out setting fires getting in fights In the prose this comes off as chopped sentences that break off just before any kind of real understanding Instead Gnarr leaves us in the land of the child where fantasy and metaphor are important than realityGood stuff Recommended

Characters Indjáninn Summary ¸ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ´ Jón Gnarr Jón Gnarr ´ 9 Free download „Fæðing mín er annað reiðarslag fyrir fjölskylduna Að vísu er ég ekki þroskaheftur Það er léttir En eftir fæðinguna blasir önnur hryllileg staðreynd við Ég er rauðhærður Það hefði ekki getað verið meira áfall þótt ég hefði verið svartur“Indjáninn er saga um fjörmikinn strák örverpi aldraðra foreldra Drengurinn á við ýmis vandamál a. Although I d seen a few episodes of J n Gnarr s comedy series Night Shift Naeturvaktin it seemed at first that this wouldn t be enough to maintain my interest in this simply written autobiography part 1 of a trilogy I d picked up what felt like a celebrity memoir with a plain style and short chapters to appeal to a wide audience written as a child narrator perhaps also structured this way because of the author s ADHD and his openness about it Other reviews indicate that the sort of details of childhood related here in unadorned fashion to the readers who pick up a Deep Vellum book expecting the experimental might only be interesting when you re a fan or friend of the person doing the telling This is how I felt for the first 20% or so I nevertheless admired his courage in placing excerpts from two sets of casenotes dated 1972 and 1977 from services that he was sent to as a kid due to troublesome behaviour alongside his own account of his childhood Brave also to have remained in a small community like Iceland and overcome the labels and the reputation in such a big way If you ve worked in a helping profession the moments of contrast and similarity between the person and the papers will already be a familiar phenomenon one which I thought couldn t come alive in the same way without direct contact But as his descriptions grew intense and as started happening it nonetheless did Although what was interesting and enlightening was the comparison of young J n s view of his parents and those of the professionals in particular their mention of his mother s communication difficulties which made an awful lot fall into place in the main story re what he would and would not have had the opportunity to learn at home The most specialised material I m familiar with in psychology relates to attachment and trauma and I often gravitate towards literature where these themes loom large it was really interesting to look at a fairly different set of problems for a change and also to read a memoir by someone who d never considered themselves intellectualThis could also make a great pre teen YA book especially for discussion Didactically there s tons of material here comparing how you might feel and think when you re being a bit mischievous and having fun versus the gravity of trouble your actions might cause for you and for others He does the kind of stuff that naughty kids in books do Just William kind of stuff and some worse but not being in a fictional world and living decades later has a lot of ongoing conseuences to deal with and it s not presented in a fun way For those kids and teenagers who as I took a very long time to realise myself haven t figured that copying fucked up fictional characters or celebrities won t get you on the right side of anyone it might even be a wake up call Gnarr also relates brilliantly the sense of being a bad kid of feeling like people think you re inherently rotten and that therefore you probably are and how it keeps coming back because you can t do anything right I d three uarters forgotten it until I read this and I think this could cross the divide with many kids who feel that way even whilst this boy is different from them because they re brighter or look less dorky or something At one point J n himself asks the big uestions outright How are you meant to behave What are these invisible rules that I don t know What is normal I don t know what I m doing wrong I don t know I don t know how to evaluate thingsThe book isn t overburdened with cultural material which makes it approachable but there s still some interesting stuff here For instance Gnarr s dad s Communist politics In 1960s 70s Iceland he seems to have been able to pursue this without much fear it was almost just an eccentric hobby albeit one that meant he wasn t promoted at work Gnarr senior was a fairly eccentric chap himself but unlike his young son also had a handy knack for conforming that made sure he faced less abrasion in life working diligently as a police constable for decades Young J n is sent to work on farms during summer holidays to try and teach him self discipline here he encounters some punitive and a few kind characters reminiscent of evacuee placements in British kids fiction and also traditional foods some revolting Whilst I don t like excess gore it s usually the case that if I can bear to hear about something in the first place I can also eat at the same time However here I read about boiled cow s udder at the exact same time I was drinking a glass of milk It was at least six hours before I could pick up the milk again and finish itThere is as you might expect uite a bit of imported US pop culture which J n can access because he reads Danish the old colonisers language as well as Icelandic The afterword relates some fascinating info that s hidden in translation eg that Gnarr did not read Donald Duck but Andr s nd the name changed to preserve alliteration and Scrooge McDuck was Onkel Joachim Near the end of the book Grease is a big hit with the local preteens J n tagging along with the craze And he actually does a thing the idea of which had always made me be glad to be the age I was and not old enough to have been a teenager in the punk era although friends reassured me that actually most people didn t do this he pierces his ears with sewing needles stolen from home The title The Indian reflects how J n enjoyed playing at Indians rather than Cowboys and identified with their outsider status This echoed an interview I read not long ago with Mads Mikkelsen a Dane only a couple of years older than Gnarr in which he said talking about starring in a Western that when he was a kid he and his friends all wanted to be the Indians and it was the thing politically then The translator s afterword sensitively points out that the adult Gnarr is aware of this as an old fashioned Hollywood concept of Indian which isn t really acceptable now especially in the US but the very unacceptability of forefronting the word in the title echoes the behaviour of the antisocial little boy he wasThe translated literary fiction shelves may not be the most natural home for this simply written book but it could be of interest to people with a background in psychology and those who knew for themselves that feeling of being a bad kid as well as school librarians teachers and others working with children and teenagers
