Angels of the Universe
Höfundur Einar Már Guðmundsson
"Few novels have made such a lasting impression on the Icelandic nation as Angels of the Universe. In the novel, the main character, Paul, tells his life story from the cradle to the grave, and describes how the shadow of mental illness falls over his life as the innocence of childhood slips away. Although the novel describes the bitterness of Paul’s fate, it is also very humorous." Translated by Bernard Scudder.
