Goodbye Rochester, Hello Reykjavik
In just a couple of hours I’m taking off for the Reykjavík International Literary Festival, which kicked off on Sunday with readings by Steinar Bragi (whose novel Women sounds great), Johan Harstad, Bergtóra Hanusardóttir, Luis López Nieves, and Junot Díaz.
Very interesting mix of Icelandic and international authors, and a good balance between interviews and readings.
With a little luck, I’ll be posting daily updates on the various Icelandic authors and whatever other interesting publishing things I come across. October is the month in which all Icelandic fiction is published, so I suspect a lot of people will be gearing up for the new season . . .
