Summer Light and Then Comes the Night
Jón Kalman Stefánsson
Poetic, exciting, philosophical and full of the special kind of atmosphere you can only find in literature written by the best Icelandic authors.
The author said: “I write about ordinary people. If I would write a book about Sturlungaöld [age of clan-warfare in medieval Iceland] I would not write about the chieftains but about the ordinary people. I try to find the casual perspective that we all understand so well.”
