    He must be brilliant if he can pass off a thesis by that name

    For those of you who do know, Revkjavik is the capital of Iceland.

    He must have paid someone to write his thesis.

    John Irving had a character who specialized in Icelandic literature.

    Dora, for those who don’t know, what is the capital of Iceland? :)

    What’s wrong with writing about Iceland? Is it a boring country? I think it would be lovely in summer.

    I thought the capital of Iceland was the krona….

    hildigunnur, is there any literature coming out of Iceland worth reading (in translation) these days? I’m always on the lookout for that sort of thing, but unless someone wins the Nobel for Literature, it’s tough to hear about it.

    Iceland has long been one of my fantasy “running away” destinations, but unfortunately I don’t eat fish. The same thing has kept me from New Orleans…

    @fritzoid Don’t worry about not eating fish - Iceland has very thriving lamb and beef industries too. The best hambugers and hot dogs I have ever tasted were the ones I purchased from vendors in downtown Reykjavik.

    Is it still true that the Reykjavik telephone directory lists people alphabetically by their first names?

    That’s cheating, MisngNOLA, I was going to say that.

    (Great minds think alike, as they say)

    Fritzoid: Yes, the Icelanders are listed by their first names, not their last names. As a matter of fact, they don’t really have last names, but only patronomica, names based on their father’s names. We had a similar custom over here in Sweden too until the 19th century.

    Fritzoid, yep (about the phone book) and that’s not about to change. Literature - hmm let me check - there are some thrillers and such being translated if you want, Arnaldur Indriðason, and Yrsa Sigurðardóttir have English translations, the more “serious” authors tend to be translated to German rather than English. I found one book by Sjón on Amazon but haven’t read it myself. Ólafur Jóhann Ólafsson has also had some books translated, I think. Hallgrímur Helgason’s quite good, too and has at least one book in English.

    And don’t worry about only having to eat fish here, like Hendelca says we have all sorts of food + some excellent ethnic restaurants and everything ;)
