Kill the Poet

Fridrik Thor Fridriksson

Set in Reykjavik and New York during WWII when artists were being blacklisted in Communist witch-hunts, Kill the Poet, is a suspenseful Romeo & Juliet story about the star-crossed love affair between Iceland's greatest (and poorest) young poet and a young female painter from a wealthy family.
