A dark, comic tale of perverse sexuality and slacker culture in Iceland's trendy capital city. Hlynur Bjorn is an unemployed thirty-something loner, still living with his mum, who spends his days on the Internet, watching satellite TV, and gazing at girls in the pub. But Hlynur's cosy, unthreatening world is shaken when his mother comes out as a lesbian, and her Spanish girlfriend Lolla moves into their home. 101 Reykjavik is a first-person account of a blackly funny and bizarre love triangle, poking fun along the way at such foibles of our culture as CNN weather reports and porn videos.
