Praise

“Laxness has genuine magic as a novelist.”–New York Herald Tribune

"Full of an earthy poetry . . . a style wonderfully wise and entirely Scandinavian in its combination of magic and reality." –The New York Times Book Review

"The qualities of the sagas pervade his writing, and particularly a kind of humor–oblique, stylized and childlike–that can be found in no other contemporary writer." –Atlantic
