Josh Stephenson’s thirteenth year starts with a baffling sequence of events. His seventeen-year-old girl cousin moves into his house, making his bedroom a corridor, he devises a truancy plan to escape the embarrassment he suffers at school, and his estranged father sends him a stuffed falcon for his birthday. And on top of all that, he’s in love but wondering if dreams of love can ever come true.
Josh goes to his secret hollow on the beach, a rocky outcropping along Iceland’s rugged coast, to try to work out if his life is being sucked into a black hole or if this is just being thirteen.
Written with passion and humor, this coming-of-age novel explores the juxtaposition of teenage angst and ecstasy.

About the Author

Fridrik Erlings is a novelist, screenwriter, graphic designer, and musician. In 1986 he founded the alternative rock band the Sugarcubes with Björk before leaving music to pursue his writing. He has written and translated lyrics as well as film and television scripts and is the author of the Icelandic classic Benjamin Dove.
He says that Fish in the Sky is “about the extreme pains and joys of being a teenager, the curious period in our lives that we all experience in more or less the same way, regardless of our culture, country, race, or gender. Perhaps it is the one time in our whole lives when we are in fact the most perfect human beings we’ll ever become. The question is: where will we go from there?”
Fridrik Erlings lives with his wife on a farm in Iceland’s wide-open South.
