The Grandmaster

A firsthand account of the dramatic 2016 World Chess Championship between Norway's Magnus Carlsen and Russia's Sergey Karjakin, which mirrored the world's geopolitical unrest and rekindled a global fascination with the sport. The first week of November 2016, as a crowd of people swarmed outside of Manhattan’s Trump Tower to rail against the election of Donald Trump, hundreds more descended on the city’s South Street Seaport. But they weren’t there to protest. They were there to watch the World Chess Championship between Norway's Magnus Carlsen and Russia's Sergey Karjakin—what by the time it was over would be front-page news and thought by many the greatest finish in chess history.

Woman at 1,000 Degrees

“THE HOTTEST NEW BOOK FROM ICELAND IS WOMAN AT 1,000 DEGREES . . . What a story it is, one worth reading to further understand the complexity of World War II—and to enjoy the quick wit of a woman you won’t forget.” —Bethanne Patrick, The Washington Post “I live here alone in a garage, together with a laptop computer and an old hand grenade. It’s pretty cozy.” Herra Björnsson is at the beginning of the end of her life. Oh, she has two weeks left, maybe three—she has booked her cremation appointment, at a crispy 1,000 degrees, so it won’t be long. But until then she has her cigarettes, a World War II–era weapon, some Facebook friends, and her memories to sustain her. And...

"Gu�bergur Bergsson achieved success with his novel T�mas J�nsson, Bestseller, which shocked Icelandic readers in innumerable ways, lashing out as it does at the Icelandic society of the post-war years for its cultural confusion, amorality, and hypocrisy. The main character is a grumpy old man who speaks and writes in various styles, grumbles and babbles and criticizes everything.” --Dagn� Kristj�nsd�ttir A retired, senile bank clerk confined to his basement apartment, T�mas J�nsson decides that, since memoirs are all the rage, he’s going to write his own--a sure bestseller--that will also right the wrongs of contemporary Icelandic society. Egoistic, cranky, and digressiv...

Le Narrateur

Un matin à Reykjavik, G., un écrivain en herbe, tombe par hasard sur un homme dans un bureau de poste du centre-ville. Sans raison apparente, il nourrit l’intime conviction que celui-ci ment à l’employé de la poste concernant le contenu du paquet qu’il envoie. Sur un coup de tête, G. décide de le suivre afin de découvrir ce que mijote l’homme qui l’obsède depuis tant d’années. Après le délicieusement absurde Animaux de compagnie, Bragi Ólafsson, l’ancien bassiste des Sugarcubes, revient avec un texte court et épuré qui, conscient de lui-même à l’instar du nouveau roman, joue malicieusement avec la métafiction et transforme imperceptiblement le lecteur en épieur de l’épieur, de l’auteur et au final du lecteur lui-même.
