The second book by the author of Hruškadóttir (2008), one of the most popular prose debuts of recent years and winner of the Jiří Orten Award.

Neither a diary, nor memories, nor scenes from life. A harrowing elegy on the loss of one’s city, house, room; a grandmother whose face you share. A novel about unborn children and those already born and first confession and a tattoo on an arm. A story of a little girl who is afraid even though she has been a woman for a long time.
