Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 andplaywright 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-somethinggardener 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 theApollo 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 hispocket 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 bustrips, 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.
