Gnarr : how I became the mayor of a large city in Iceland and changed the world by Jón Gnarr( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It all started in 2009 when Jón Gnarr founded the Best Party to satirize Iceland's leadership, which had precipitated the world-wide economic meltdown. Entering the race for mayor of Reykjavík, Iceland's capital, Gnarr promised to get the dinosaurs from Jurassic Park into downtown parks and to have a "drug-free Parliament by 2020." He also promised he'd break all his campaign promises. But then something strange happened: the Best Party emerged as the biggest vote-getter in the election. And just like that, a man whose previous foreign-relations experience consisted of a radio show in which he regularly crank-called the White House was soon meeting international leaders and being taken seriously as the mayor of a European capital. In this memoir, Gnarr recounts how it all happened and, with admirable candor, describes his vision of a more enlightened politics for the future. The point, he writes, is not to be afraid to get involved--or to take on the system"--

"The second volume in former Reykjavik mayor Jón Gnarr's childhood memoir-novel trilogy follows the success of The Indian, described by NPR as 'a beautiful but disturbing portrait of a misfit painfully aware that he's not like anyone else.' In The Pirate, poor young Jón stands at a crossroads at the end of middle school looking into a future he doesn't believe in, feeling like a total outcast in society. But there is light at the tunnel: hope comes in the guise of the Sex Pistols and Prince Kropotkin--punk rock, and anarchy offer the promise of a better and more exciting life"--Page 4 of cover
