This sweet novella instantly carried me to a dream-like snowy icelandic landscape. The plot moves between a fox hunt and the lives of the 19th century characters, creating an experience that is delightful, magical, and almost mythical. You might turn into a fox! Sjon has written lyrics for Bjork and his work has only recently been translated into English. Defintely worth the read!
