Sarah Moss - Names for the Sea

Names for the Sea is a vivid and honest read about Sarah Moss’s family’s one year stay in post-kreppa (crisis) Iceland. With two children, Sarah learns to make ends meet in a society that does not deal in secondhand goods. She walks and cycles on roads that are not made for pedestrians. The family lives in a habitable but abandoned development. She meets and talks with people who rarely have much experience interacting with strangers. Moss is an astute observer of the tiny Icelandic society, and Names for the Sea is a candid account of her year in Iceland that will make you want to buy a plane ticket and travel to Iceland immediately after turning the last page.
