A young woman comes down from the North to Reykjavik to work in a wealthy household The newly independent Icelandic Parliament is working towards committing itself to dependence on the USA by allowing them to build an atomic weapons base in the countryThe picture of the close interrelationship between political and economic power is seen from the point of view of the young woman who comes from a family whose existence is mathematically impossible and yet they survive with two cows less than a hundred sheep and a herd of wild horsesIt would be a surprise in a small country if the network of connections between political and economic power was not dense and this is interesting in the light of Iceland s most recent financial difficulties yet as it says in the novel a big country and a small country are only different in one way

Ugla is an uneducated but intelligent 20 year old from the North of Iceland She comes to Reykjavik to work as a maid in the house of her local Member of Parliament She is surprised to find herself in a home of a nice guy who becomes smitten by her but his wife lives in fear of Communism and their children are out of control newbie rich kids who drink fornicate and destroy public property with no fear of arrest She meets a cadre of strange friends who are a mix of philosophers a hustler musicians policemen a prostitute and idealistic communistsThe writing at times is uite strange but otherwise it paints a picture of Iceland in 1948 grappling with the cold war the impact of consumerism and the move away from traditional values It could be read as being cynical but I thought Laxness was just telling the truth through a great strong female character and her conversations It also gives great respect to the Sagas writers and people of the past
