About the Event

Our book this month  is Miss Iceland by Auður Ólafsdóttir and takes place in Iceland in the 1960s.  

Hekla is a budding female novelist who was born in the remote district  of Dalir. After packing her few belongings, including James Joyces's Ulysses and a Remington typewriter, she heads for Reykjavik with a manuscript  buried in her bags. There, she intends to become a writer. Sharing an  apartment with her childhood and queer friend Jón John, Hekla comes to  learn that she will have to stand alone in a small male dominated  community that would rather see her win a pageant than be a professional  artist. As the two friends find themselves increasingly on the outside,  their bond shapes and strengthens them artistically in the most moving  of ways.  (From goodreads)
