Brahmadellarnir in the US

On 14 November the novel "Brahmadellarnir" (2011) by Jóanes Nielsen will be available on the US market. It is translated into English from Faroese by Kerri A. Pierce and published by "Open Letter". On their webpage, "Open Letter" writes: "Filled with colorful characters and various family intrigues, the novel incorporates a number of genres and styles as it shifts from individual stories to larger world issues. There are historical documents, including nineteenth-century medical journals, documents detailing the lives of real historical figures, digressions about religion, a measles outbreak, and many other travails, large and small. Epic in its scope, importance, and literary approach, The Brahmadells is a playful, engrossing look at life in an island nation whose rich history is relatively unknown to most English readers".
