Dreamland by Andri Snær published in the United Kingdom
An unconventional approach to such issues of development and the environment, Dreamland: A Self-Help Manual for a Frightened Nation, powerfully combines personal reflection and investigative exposé in a unique and fascinating look into the conflicted national psyche of contemporary Iceland.
Dreamland has been praised for its gripping style, originality and its wry, poetic prose but, despite the serious nature of the subject, the author never loses his sense of humour.
