Summer Light, and Then Comes the Night

Elfar Aðalsteins

The village is brimming with stories and if you listen closely it might tell you a few. Perhaps the one about the prominent businessman who starts dreaming in Latin and sacrifices a promising career for astronomy and old books, or the one about the delicate boy who carves moorland birds and dreams of being an artist, or maybe the one of the open air sexual affair that has explosive consequences, or the one about the big rock that can break the finely woven thread between life and death.
