About the Author

Edward Hancox lives in the UK with his wife and small, noisy child but spends as much time as he can in Iceland. Music - especially contemporary Icelandic music - is his other passion. He writes about both subjects for various magazines and websites, including 'Iceland Review', 'Atlantica', and the 'Reykjavik Grapevine', and on his blog, Edward enjoys growing plants, which, not unlike himself, are tall and thin. He has had particular success with bamboo and rhubarb. It is not possible to grow bamboo in Iceland, but rhubarb is surprisingly prevalent.


"Writes with wit and humor. Wonderful descriptions of Iceland as a country and as his home from home." - READER RECOMMENDATION 'THE GUARDIAN' // "A devoted fan of all things Icelandic - and particularly Icelandic music - Edward Hancox has shared his amusing anecdotes the world over through his colorful columns on 'Iceland Review' online. His readers will be sure to welcome his publishing debut." - EYGLO ARNARSDOTTIR 'ICELAND REVIEW' // "A quirky, easy-reading insight into the country." - 'WANDERLUST' // "Get rid of your guidebook immediately and instead bring along Hancox's comical and honest suggestions." - 'ICELAND REVIEW' // "A deeply personal tale with a warm-hearted focus." - 'NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC TRAVELLER' // "His words have stayed with me and whilst travelling I had a little 'Iceland, Defrosted' voice in the back of my head." - CHARLOTTE THEOBOLD 'ARCTIC ADVENTURES' // "Hancox knows his Bjork from his Borko." - OLAFUR ARNALDS (musician and composer)
