Aprašymas

“A quirky, melodic, ticklish, seamlessly translated, lovingly polished gem of a novel.” —David Mitchell

Sjón is one of the world’s great writers. His work has been championed by the likes of Junot Díaz, David Mitchell, Björk, A. S. Byatt, Hari Kunzru, Michel Faber, and Alberto Manguel, who calls The Whispering Muse “an extraordinary, powerful fable—a marvel.” He is Iceland’s greatest living novelist, and The Whispering Muse is the book that will push him firmly into the international literary spotlight.
     The year is 1949 and Valdimar Haraldsson, an eccentric Icelander with elevated ideas about the influence of fish consumption on Nordic civilization, has had the singular good fortune to be invited to join a Danish merchant ship on its way to the Black Sea. Among the crew is the mythical hero Caeneus, disguised as the second mate. Every evening after dinner he entrances his fellow travelers with the tale of how he sailed with the fabled vessel the Argo on the Argonauts’ quest to retrieve the Golden Fleece.
     What unfolds is a slender, brilliant, always entertaining novel that evokes Borges and Calvino as it weaves together tales of myth and antiquity with the modern world in a literary voice so singular as to seem possessed.
