lori RECOMMENDS:

"Inherited memories, legacies imprinted upon generations of Icelanders, determine how characters accommodate the processes of living and dying in this unforgettable novel. Narrated by a man who has returned home with almost no memory of his old life or friends, author Jon Kalman Stefansson explores heartbreak, loneliness, and, most of all, hope. The writing, whether about people or place, is descriptively and emotionally rich. As a saga of small-town life, the book is replete with wonderful stories of mostly ordinary (and a few remarkable) people, legendary to all who fondly remember them. It is difficult to imagine how there could be a book published in 2024 that I will love more than Your Absence is Darkness." -Lori
