I am afraid that I am unsure of the details
I have only read one other piece by BM and that was Pig Iron and I bloody loved it! This novella feels completely different to PI and it displays BM's talents even further. This is a day in the life of two elderly brothers Snorri & Frosti.
The piece makes the mundane totally beautiful and charming and glorious to read. The relationship between the two elderly brothers is tender and funny and awkward and enchanting all at the same time and shows the clear skill of BM's writing and his fondness for the two old men. It is heartbreaking to see that they couldn't really cope without one another and that their lives are as happy and as full as they need them to be.
This is an extraordinary novella that I loved to tiny little pieces and if you are a BM fan or not, you need to read it! It is just truly glorious in every way!
I won't write much more as it is only a short piece and I don't want to ruin anyone's heartache and joy and all that stuff you will feel whilst reading!
