Talk to Strangers is an illustrated collection of short stories by the Icelandic fiction writer Börkur Sigurbjörnsson. Each short story tells the tale of an encounter with an alien form, be it a stranger in the street, a foreign point of view or an internal dialog with the concealed part of our own subconsciousness. The collection introduces strangers from around the world with stories taking place in Buenos Aires, Bogotá, Barcelona, London and Reykjavík. This collection of short stories is illustrated by the author himself.
“This collection was a few years in the making and it took me some time to settle on the theme. At first I deliberately intended to write stories about the act of waiting, but after reaching several dead-ends and artificially forced subjects the concept of strangers started appearing organically.”
