A HEAP OF MEANING - a playlist based on the book “Nothing” by Janne Teller.
Some months ago I read this fantastic short novel by Danish writer Janne Teller and was absolutely astonished by it. This is some serious gutsy writing, not your common teenage-lit, and it comes without saying that this book is not for everybody, reviews are either hate or love but nothing in between, so in the spirit of the book I made this playlist that reflected my personal feelings on the story of Pierre-Anthon, a seventh-grader who realizes there is no meaning to life and his classmates’ mission to prove to Pierre-Anthon that life has meaning.

Like the book, this mix might leave you with a nauseous sense of escalating discomfort, if that is the case then I have been successful.
