Read full description of the books:
A young woman comes down from the North to Reykjavik to work in a wealthy household. The newly independent Icelandic Parliament is working towards committing itself to dependence on the USA by allowing them to build an atomic weapons base in the country.
The picture of the close interrelationship between political and economic power is seen from the point of view of the young woman who comes from a family whose existence is mathematically impossible and yet they survive with two cows, less than a hundred sheep and a herd of wild horses.
It would be a surprise in a small country if the network of connections between political and economic power was not dense and this is interesting in the light of Iceland's most recent financial difficulties, yet as it says in the novel a big country and a small country are only different in one way.

Read information about the authorBorn Halldór Guðjónsson, he adopted the surname Laxness in honour of Laxnes in Mosfellssveit where he grew up, his family having moved from Reyjavík in 1905. He published his first novel at the age of 17, the beginning of a long literary career of over 60 books, including novels, short stories, poetry, and plays. Confirmed a Catholic in 1923, he later moved away from religion and for a long time was sympathetic to Communist politics, which is evident in his novels World Light and Independent People. In 1955 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.
