In a village of four hundred souls, the infinite light of an Icelandic summer makes its inhabitants want to explore, and the eternal night of winter lights up the magic of the stars.

Jón Kalman Stefánsson's award-winning Summer Light, and Then Comes the Night is a profound masterpiece that explores the lives of ordinary people in a rural community on the verge of change.

Stefánsson’s novels have been nominated three times for the Nordic Council Prize for Literature. Summer Light, and then Comes the Night received the Icelandic Prize for Literature.

‘Powerful and sparkling . . . Prize-winning translator Philip Roughton's feather-light touch brings out the gleaming, fairy-tale quality of the writing,’ The Irish Times.

‘Ce roman envoûtant qui vous happe doucement et ne vous lâche plus fait partie de la première sélection du Médicis étranger,’ Actualitte.com
