Summary (From the publisher):

This novel is not a war novel, properly speaking, but a work of magic realism which traces a series of boisterous, tragi-comic events in one of the more unusual western European societies. This novel develops into a presentation in mythical form of the conflict between life and death, goodness and evil.

  • "William Heinesen's novels are intensely Faeroese, but so universal in their appeal that the reader automatically surrenders to their charm, their energy, their easy intensity and is overwhelmed by the perspective they convey." The Independent
