Buzz Aldrin, What Happened to You in All the Confusion? opens with the line: "The person you love is 72.8% water, and it hasn’t rained for weeks." From there, Brage Award–winning author and playwright Johan Harstad’s debut—previously published to great success in eleven countries and now making its first English-language appearance—tells the story of Mattias, a thirty-something gardener living in Stavanger, Norway, whose idol is Buzz Aldrin, second man on the moon: the man who was willing to stand in Neil Armstrong’s shadow in order to work, diligently and humbly, for the success of the Apollo 11 mission. Following a series of personal and professional disasters, Mattias finds himself lying on a rain-soaked road in the desolate, treeless Faroe Islands, population only a few thousand, a wad of bills in his pocket and no memory of how he had come to be there—that’s when a truck approaches him, driven by a troubled, fantastic man with an offer that will shortly change Mattias’s life. And so, surrounded by a vivid and memorable cast of characters—aspiring pop musicians, Caribbean-obsessed psychologists, death-haunted photographers, girls who dream of anonymous men falling in love with them on bus trips, and even Buzz Aldrin himself—launches Buzz Aldrin, What Happened To You In All The Confusion?, the epic story of Mattias’s pop-saturated odyssey through the world of unconventional psychiatry, souvenir sheep-making, the Cardigans, and space: the space between himself and other people, a journey maybe as remote and personally dangerous as the trip to the moon itself.

Here we have the anatomy of the contemporary writer, as imagined by the pseudonymous, "post-exotic" Antoine Volodine. His writers aren't the familiar, bitter, alcoholic kind, however; nor are they great, romantic, tortured geniuses; and least of all are they media darlings and socialites. No, in Volodine's universe, the writer is pitted in a pathetic struggle against silence and sickness--that is, when she's not about to be murdered by random lunatics or fellow inmates. Consisting of seven loosely interlocking stories, Writers is a window onto a chaotic reality where expressing oneself brings along with it repercussions both absurd and frighteningly familiar.

The extraordinary true story of Mehran Karimi Nasseria, better know as 'Sir Alfred' - a man with no official identity or country.Sir Alfred has been living in the departure lounge of Terminal 1 of Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris for 16 years. He sleeps on a red bench borrowed from an old bar, dines at McDonalds every day, and is surrounded by piles of magazines stored in cargo boxes and his extensive diary. Sir Alfred's odyssey began when the death of his father revealed a long hidden family secret that shattered his life and sense of self. A secret that meant Sir Alfred had to leave the country to travel to England to study. When all communications with his family mysteriously stopped, Sir Alfred was forced to return to Iran where he was arrested at the airport. He was imprisoned, tortured, and then expelled with a passport valid for just one year. Sir Alfred arrived at Charles de Gaulle on 8th August 1988 intending to take a plane to London - amazingly 16 years later he is still there waiting for his flight. Without the proper documentation he quickly found himself trapped in a bureaucratic Catch-22 nightmare. Fearing arrest as an illegal immigrant if he left the terminal building, he has spent the last decade and a half waiting "for my identity" while lawyers and government officials argued about his case.Political refugee, prisoner, exile, rebel, gentleman, citizen of the world, media magnet and delayed passenger, The Terminal Man tells Sir Alfred's incredible and unique life story in his own words
