From Iceland — Mayor Gnarr Memoir Announced

Mayor Gnarr Memoir Announced

Published February 24, 2014

US publisher, Melville House, will be publishing Jón Gnarr’s memoir this summer, reports RÚV.

‘Gnarr: How I Became the Mayor of a Large City in Iceland and Changed the World’ will be published in June, right around the time the mayor’s term ends.

In the book mayor Gnarr will recount how he started and formed the Best Party, his journey to becoming mayor and the lessons he’s learned from his campaign and while in office.

“Best party is coming to America and the world! Everybody should have the right to vote Best! We are the world!” Gnarr said, adding that “Just because something is funny and makes you laugh, doesn’t mean it can’t be serious.”

“The American political scene is a pretty humorless place these days. We can learn a lot from Jón Gnarr,” Melville House co-publisher Valerie Merians said.

The book is already available in Germany under the name „Hören Sie gut zu und wiederholen Sie“.
