B. Asma (languagelearner) | 3527 comments Tara, I read your review of The Colonel on GR and on your wonderfully creative international lit blog. What a happy title for it! I would like to browse further into the Icelandic material you posted there in Languages and in the Interviews (Victoria Cribb who translated Sjón).

Tara (booksexyreview) | 11 comments Thank you, Asma! I'm looking forward to Icelandic Lit in 2014. I'm still learning how this works - do we stay with Iceland the entire year, with a different book discussed every month?

B. Asma (languagelearner) | 3527 comments Tara, the survey of literary Iceland encompasses the entire year. Along with those readings, there also are ones from the surrounding region, i.e., the countries in the poll. The principal focus is on Icelandic literature.
