Jónas Ebeneser is 49 years old, divorced and heterosexual. He has little to no power, and has not felt a woman's touch - at least not for the past eight years and five months. Even so, he is handy. He has laid tiles in seven bathrooms, and when he goes away for a holiday, he has no plans to return, so he brings his drill.
In her fifth novel, Icelandic author Auður Ava Ólafsdóttir deals with life's three big mysteries: life, death and love.
In 2016, the author received the Icelandic Literary Prize for this substantial and mature novel, as well as the Nordic Council Literary Prize in 2018.
