PortraitHALLDOR LAXNESS (1902-98) was born near Reykjavik, Iceland. His first novel was published when he was 17.

He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1955.
Pressestimmen"Laxness is a poet who writes to the edges of the pages, a visionary who allows us a plot." -- Fay Weldon Daily Telegraph "To read Laxness is to discover an extra taste bud. He creates a world that belongs in another dimension." -- Nicholas Shakespeare "An extraordinary book, brimming with little wisdoms, funny episodes, sharp phrases...and a determined optimism of spirit" The Times "Laxness was a genius" New York Review of Books "Magnus Magnusson's translation reads smoothly and skilfully renders Laxness's dry and quirky wit" Times Literary Supplement
