"The Endless Summer by Madame Nielsen is my literary discovery of the year." --Sjón
"Once in a while, after you've finished a book and put it down, you wish that the author was a good friend and you could call her whenever you felt sad. It's not something that happens often. But it does when you read Karen Blixen and Marguerite Duras and Virginia Woolf. And Madame Nielsen."--Christian Kracht
