* WINNER OF THE 2011 NORDIC COUNCIL LITERATURE PRIZE* Gyroir Elíasson's stories take us out of ourselves. Situated on the lonely western shores of Iceland, or out in the vast mountain ranges or barren lava fields of this spectacular country, each one is a study in self-exile. We follow a Boston ornithologist, speeding through the landscape in a fourby-four, chasing Arctic Terns; a schoolboy relocating to the northernmost town of Siglufjördur to compete in a chess tournament; a husband packing his wife off to visit her aunt in Sweden. In almost every story we find people taking leave of their normal lives in order to take their dreams more seriously. But even in the most desolate surroundings Elíasson's characters find strange company; ghostly presences in the early hours, enviable neighbours, fellow writers turning up at the same retreat, with the same ambitions. Like the wide canopy of stars under which they're told, these stories plot a constellation of single, glittering images: a child defacing a new piano with a chisel in the middle of the night; a freezer packed with carefully wrapped dead birds, candles floating in a pond at night… Elíasson's images are always unresolved, but are also somehow complete; like the dreams he shares with us, that lead us, through their own solitude, into other people's. As Elíasson writes, 'all dreams are joined at the edges, like the squares in a patchwork quilt.'

Das Finale der Beachrats-Reihe steht ganz im Zeichen des Abschieds. Zuerst muss sich die Familie von Sean verabschieden, was vor allem bei Justin gemischte Gefühle hervorruft. Darüber hinaus bereiten die GroBen Vier langsam ihren Abschied aus Newport Beach vor. Bevor es jedoch soweit ist, müssen David und Brian noch ihren High-School-Abschluss machen. In "Childhood's End" steht aber auch die Europareise auf dem Programm, Murray findet seinen ersten Freund, Rob feiert seinen ersten Geburtstag und Rick sieht nach einer langen Zeit seinen besten Freund aus der Schulzeit wieder.
