Laxness, Halldór. Christianity at Glacier (SIGNED COPY) - Translated by Magnus Magnusson

£110.00

Product description

Halldór Laxness is an Icelandic author who won the Nobel prize for literature in 1955. Throughout his literary career he wrote novels, poetry, newspaper articles, essays, plays, travelogues and short stories. Some of his most famous works include:The Great Weaver from Kashmir (1927), Independent People (1935) and The Atom Station (1948).


Christianity at Glacier, first published in Icelandic in 1968, follows a youthful emissary who is sent by the Bishop of Iceland to investigate the state of Christianity in the mysterious district of Glacier. The story is told through the young emissary's reports to the Bishop about some extraordinary happenings in the region.


"If there were any justice in the literary world -- and of course there isn't -- this amazing little volume would inspire a cult following. (...) Under the Glacier is both a modern novel and a luminous tale of timeless mythic profundity." - Andrew O'Hehir, Salon


This copy of Christianity at Glacier is in good condition with its original, beautiful, sleeve intact. There is some very light damage to the bottom on the sleeve and some small stains on the square at the top of the book. However none of this is substantial and the book is in very good condition having been published in 1972, translated by Magnus Magnusson. THIS COPY IS SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR.
