Fresh Fish

A new meditation on Halldór Laxness' charming and insightful The Fish Can Sing has been posted at the Laxness in Translation site. First posted on wdvalgardson's kaffihus, this extended piece looks at the book from a number of angles, and even shows its relevance to contemporary events.

W. D. Valgardson is a writer, teacher and was recently the editor of the Icelandic North American newspaper, Logberg-Heimskringl. His most recent book is What the Bear Said: Skald Tales from New Iceland, his well-written blog is a joy to read, it covers Icelandic and Canadian topics, along with whatever else holds his interest.
