About This Month's Book: 

Butterflies in November by Auður Ava Ólafsdóttir 

After a day of being dumped - twice - and accidentally killing a goose, the narrator begins to dream of tropical holidays far away from the chaos of her current life. Instead, she finds her plans wrecked by her best friend's deaf-mute son, thrust into her reluctant care. But when a shared lottery ticket nets the two of them over 40 million kroner, she and the boy head off on a road trip across Iceland, taking in cucumber-farming hotels, dead sheep, and any number of her exes desperate for another chance.  

Blackly comic and uniquely moving, Auður Ava Ólafsdóttir has created an extraordinary, hilarious tale of motherhood, relationships and the legacy of life's mistakes.
