Críticas:

"Laxness is a poet who writes to the edges of the pages, a visionary who allows us a plot." ( Daily Telegraph)

"To read Laxness is to discover an extra taste bud. He creates a world that belongs in another dimension."

"An extraordinary book, brimming with little wisdoms, funny episodes, sharp phrases...and a determined optimism of spirit" ( The Times)

"Laxness was a genius" ( New York Review of Books)

"Magnus Magnusson's translation reads smoothly and skilfully renders Laxness's dry and quirky wit" ( Times Literary Supplement)

Reseña del editor:

When the Americans make an offer to buy land in Iceland to build a NATO airbase after World War II, a storm of protest is provoked throughout the country. The airbase provides Laxness with the catalyst for his astonishing and powerful satire. Narrated by a country girl from the north, the novel follows her experiences after she takes up employment as a maid in the house of her Member of Parliament. Marvelling at the customs and behaviour of the people around her, she emerges as the one obstinate reality in a world of unreality. Her observations and experiences expose the bourgeois society of the south as rootless and shallow and in stark contrast to the age-old culture of the solid and less fanciful north.

A witty and moving satire on politics and politicians, Communists and anti-Communists, phoney culture fiends, big business and all the pretensions of authority, Laxness' masterpiece of social commentary is as relevant today as when it was written in 1948.
