Europe of writers: Iceland
Procirep - Angoa
Iceland by Arni Thorarinsson, Audur Ava Olafsdottir and Jon Kalman Stefansson
When speaking about Iceland, what springs to mind are the landscapes - both immense and desolate, a population that is introverted and a language that is incomprehensible. It is an unfair caricature, because Iceland is the world champion of works published by its inhabitants. Icelandic readers are keen readers and among the most enthusiastic.
This documentary film meets Arni Thorarinsson, one of the masters of crime fiction, Jon Kalman Stefánsson, more in the romanesque tradition, and Audur Ava Olafsdottir and through their personality and strength of their literary identity, grasps part of this fascinating country.
