Mikael Niemi

  • Astrotruckers

  • Forget The Hitchhiker's Guide, this is the only handbook you need to navigate your way through the goings on of outer space.

    What do you say to an intellectually superior fistular maggot who wants to observe you watching football?

    What happens when you switch your android's personality setting to 'humour'?

    Discover the most popular and most pungent Earth mementos taken into space and illuminate the murkiest areas of human knowledge: the meaning of the oldest writing in the universe, who set off the big bang, the catalyst for the death of literature and, of course, how the world will end.

    Poetic, grotesque, hilarious, disgusting and visionary, Astrotruckers will reveal all this and more.

Mikael Niemi was born in 1959, grew up in Pajala, Sweden and still lives there. His first novel for adults, Popular Music, was awarded the August Prize and was made into a film in 2004. It has sold over a million copies worldwide and has been translated into thirty languages. Among his published books are two collections of poetry - Näsblod under högmässan (Nosebleed during Morning Service) (1998) and Änglar med mausergevär (Angels with Mausers) (1989) - and a young adult novel, Kyrkdjävulen (The Church Devil) (1994).
