«'Magical and disturbing' Adam Thirlwell»

Adam Thirlwell

«A wild adventure... Ómarsdóttir's novel is kaleidoscopic; the more you look at it, the more you see.»

Lucy Writers

«One of the most original authors in contemporary Icelandic literature...known for subverting traditional binaries like fantasy and realism, feminine and masculine, good and evil, and the animal and the human.»

Orð um bækur

«One of [this country's] most respected authors.»

Egill Helgason, Kiljan

«A master of the unexpected.»

Steingerður Steinsdóttir, Vikan

«Kristín does everything at once - enchants, terrifies, devastates and delights.»

Úlfhildur Dagsdóttir, Bókmenntavefurinn

«She approaches taboos with complete irreverence, as if they don't hinder her at all.»

Andri Snær Magnason, author of LoveStar

«A many-layered novel that immediately grips the reader... makes us think about what it is to be human and the borders that people invent to distinguish themselves from others and to trap themselves.»

The Icelandic Women's Literature Prize

«With enchanting style and perfect conviction Kristín leads the reader into a dreamworld that is so lifelike that we don't know whether we are in a bad dream or a terrifying nightmare.»

Gauti Kristmannsson, Víðsjá
