Laxness Sighting


Yes, Laxness was at the American Library Association Annual Conference! Made my day.

you mean Lochness? The Lochness montser? OMG!

Jon said...

Okay, between you and Batty I have ordered a used copy of Independent People. I am sure it will strengthen my growing obsession with Iceland. Is that dangerous?

Rose said...

Jon,
We hope so! Dangerous in a very, very good way ;-)
I'm not sure how long you've been reading Batty--have you seen our Laxness List posts? Independent People may not be the most accessible of Laxness' works; on the other hand, it may appeal to you right off!

Flippism

Rose,
I have read much of Batty's writings and quite a bit of yours even though the discovery is recent. I wanted to get in a meaningful recreational read before school starts again. Then its academia for a while. It is fun to find people with so much commonality even though I am not a blogger. Not eloquent or prolific enough.

Well, Jon, you can see that some of us are more prolific than others--I admire my blog friends who consistently post, week in, week out. You clearly have eloquence about subjects you're interested in--Iceland! and, who knows what else--so don't rule it out. I'm sure there's a story there about your Father's ashes, and what your cosmic bond is to Iceland.
