The literary island of Iceland is examined and the rich part that literature has, or had, in the nation’s identity. Is this beautification or self-delusion? How does this affect authors who come from elsewhere and who deal with Iceland, and how do they perceive the literary landscape here? Kristof Magnússon, Eliza Reid, Joachim Schmidt, Egill Bjarnason and Mao Alheimsdóttir discuss. Moderator: Halldór Guðmundsson.
