The cult Swedish graphic novel that inspired the critically acclaimed Lukas Moodysson film 'We Are the Best!' Coco, Klara and Mathilda have known each other since primary school, where they met in Folk Dancing class. Now they're almost teenagers, and their anarchist ideals and dreams of forming a world-beating punk band set them apart from the other girls at school. They can't play any instruments, practice with pillows and pans, and keep getting told that punk is dead. But they're not going to let any of those things get in their way...Published in English for the first time, Never Goodnight is a hilarious and life-affirming memoir that will remind you that all you need in life is your best friends, a can of hairspray and three guitar chords.
Praise for the film 'We Are The Best!': 'If Charles Schulz had ever penned a Peanuts strip about punk rock, it might have looked and felt a little like this. Exclamation points seem entirely apropos: it's the best!' Guardian 'A joyous celebration of youth, friendship and rebellion' Time Out London 'Captures perfectly the aimlessness of adolescence, the waiting to become something that's so often intertwined with the desire to make something, to leave your mark on the world in some small way' Village Voice
