Description

Part lambasting of gender roles and capitalist absurdity, part investigation into human-nature relationships, Stormwarning is the third collection of poetry by Kristín Svava Tómasdóttir. An up-and-coming poet in Iceland and abroad, Tómasdóttir imbues her work with dark humor and understated Scandinavian dread, playing with language and expectations to leave her reader in breathless anticipation of the coming storm.

Reviews

“It is nevertheless branded with her unique balance of social criticism and the scathing wit and humour that she uses to unravel the old-guard conservative rhetoric often overheard in Icelandic hot-tubs. It also touts a self-awareness that is sometimes lacking in today’s online call-out culture.” —Björn Halldórsson, The Reykjavik Grapevine

“Kristín Svava Tómasdóttir has done the seemingly impossible: taken our contemporary capitalist culture, suffused with moralism as well as not-so-hidden prejudice, glorying in its achievements while squandering its wealth, and submitted it to critique while making us laugh at the whole thing.” —Magdalena Kay, World Literature Today
