From Iceland — VIDEO: An Interview With Jón Gnarr

VIDEO: An Interview With Jón Gnarr

Published May 30, 2013

In this extended, free-flowing interview, American author Stephen Markley speaks with Mayor Jón Gnarr about the difference between Icelandic and American politics, becoming mayor during a crisis, and why babies are always sitting in strollers by themselves on the sidewalk.

The interview appears in Stephen’s new travelogue about Iceland “Tales of Iceland or Running with the Huldufólk in the Permanent Daylight.” The book follows Stephen and his friends as they road trip around the country, experiencing the history, culture, local flavor, and unfamiliar habits of Iceland, including bizarre encounters with Reykjavik video clerks, terrifying ducks, and drunken American actor Kiefer Sutherland.
