This first hand account of their emotional journey to her father's birthplace provides a beautifully written and very readable account of the geography, history, legend and pure contradiction of Iceland and her people's traditions and modern way of life. This engaging book allows you to explore the hectic, exciting city of Reykjavik and the more desolate and wild landscapes to the north whilst also showing the depth of history and cultural tradition the modern Icelandic culture is based upon. This book not only provides an unsentimental but tender portrait of a very private man who has been in the public eye for over 25 years through the uncompromising eyes of his daughter but also introduces a beautiful country, which through brilliant writing, will provide you with an 'armchair journey' and may even inspire you to explore this magical place for yourself.

Sally Magnusson's memoir of her trip to Iceland with her father Magnus Magnusson is not only a record of their sometimes awkward relationship but also charts a journey through some of the most beautiful and unspoilt areas of this huge country and its culture and history.
