Dolly has a boyfriend called Mårten who irritates her. “Since the first hot passion of love has calmed down, clumsy sex in the bathtub has become the standard activity to brighten up our loving but very routine relationship.” Dolly prays to a rock star who turns up in her room. But she is the only person who can see him.
Messed-up psyches and distorted self-images are running at an inflationary rate among her friends, and she feels she herself is in the risk zone. Dolly’s best friend is called Marvin, and he tries to get her to live in real life – with varying success.
Hey Dolly is an hilarious psychological description of what goes on inside the head of a teenage girl who is both smart and unaware.
