Birger Niehaus "Isländer beim Taubenessen" Book
In 40 prose essays, a German exchange student describes Reykjavík, its inhabitants and visitors, and tries to approach Icelandic reality by writing between concert hall and supermarket, antiquarian bookshop and swimming pool. Thanks to self-irony, his biting humor keeps the balance between a critical view and mockery. Sympathy alternates with irritation. In the end, what remains is a collection of impressions that is unequivocally worth reading: "The unknown country in its sensuous present."
