The Nordic House
How do ideas come to life? Does the form control the story or vice versa? In this panel, various forms of fiction and narrative writing will be discussed, what the forms have in common and what separates them. What are the characteristics of these authors’ writings and where are the boundaries between fiction and reality? Sigrún Pálsdóttir has written both fiction and non-fiction, as well as books that straddle the border. Helene Flood broke through all over the world with the novel The Therapist where the methods of psychology are tested and Alexander Dan creates new worlds and realities in his books. The moderator of the discussion is Árni Matthíasson.
