About the Author

Jon Kalman Stefansson's novels have been nominated three times for the Nordic Council Prize for Literature and his novel Summer Light, and then Comes the Night received the Icelandic Prize for Literature in 2005. In 2011 he was awarded the prestigious P.O. Enquist Award.

Reviews

Very powerful -- Eileen Battersby * Irish Times * A wonderful, exceptional writer . . . A timeless storyteller -- Carsen Jensen Stefansson's prose - translated with craggy eloquence by Philip Roughton - rolls and surges with oceanic splendour. -- Boyd Tonkin * Spectator. * Powerful and sparkling . . . Prize-winning translator Philip Roughton's feather-light touch brings out the gleaming, fairy-tale quality of the writing, making what could be a stereotypically dark Nordic novel an impassioned and lyrical read. In Fish Have No Feet, Stefansson brings out the history of a place and its people in a way few contemporary writers ever manage. -- Nora Mahoney * Irish Times. *
