Alt, eg ikki minnist (Everything I Can’t Remember) is an unforgettable love story about our time, and the price humans must pay to live together.
It is also the story about an author, who by filling the gaps in Sámal’s story tries to discover the truth about himself. For, in the final reckoning, what becomes of all our memories that fade so quickly? What is hidden in everything we do not remember? And who are we except for the stories others tell of us?
This novel calls for a careful and mature reader. Khemiri switches between past and present, between several layers and many narrators in brief passages. The narrative style is complex but stylistically so tight that you soon are drawn in.
