Independent People, An Epic
by Halldor Laxness
- 480 PAGES
A masterwork redolent of rural Icelandic life in the early days of the 20th century. This great mock-epic features Bjartur of Summerhouses -- a hard-headed, independent-minded sheep farmer whose voice dominates the story. Whatever its ethnographic interest, this is a tremendously good book, rich in local detail. The author won the Nobel Prize in 1955.
