Read and discuss Scandinavian literature in translation as part of our Nordic Book Club. Discussions typically take place the last Tuesday of the month in the Halldór Laxness Library at Scandinavia House and online in our Goodreads group during the last week of the month.

Tómas Jónsson, the title character in Guđbergur Bergsson’s latest novel Tómas Jónsson, Bestseller (Open Letter, July 2017) is a cranky retiree who decides to jump on the bandwagon and write his own memoir that will also right the wrongs of contemporary Icelandic society.
