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
