brilliant but i think its best yo read it just for language and phrasing first - focussing on those and plot made it tricky (but beautiful) to follow #stlucia i totally see why he was awarded a Nobel!

The Eskimos ... know all about the depression of the long night. They called it 'perlerorneq' which means 'to feel the weight of life'.

a piece of pure brilliance - writing grief is so hard but max porter does it so well (or is it Crow)

a dark love letter to Iceland! brilliant novelisation of the life and death of the last execution there. thoroughly Laxness!

great end to the trilogy but i would have liked for about Tiro's last forty years - but as he would say - it's not his story!

They came to a place where their ways parted. they stopped there and stood as if held together by something outside themselves. perhaps it was the magic of the moon that held them rooted to the spot.

brilliant book looking at Gikuyu ttibal politics - having just read a book on #fgm it's i teredting to read a novel that recognises its cultural weight (but i think in a equitable manner). #kenya #readingafrica #gikuyu
