This is the story of one Englishman's obsession with a half-frozen, roughly duck-shaped island in the cold North Atlantic. 

Loosely based on a circuitous route around Iceland, it concentrates on places, people and experiences, soundtracked by the coolest Icelandic musicians, all wrapped up in the warmest lopapeysa and jump-started with the strongest coffee. It is a story that's almost a love letter, born from a constant yearning for this special place and fuelled by a growing understanding and a desire to uncover the real Iceland.

Join us to discuss this personal and funny account of travels around Iceland.

The event is free to attend and is open to all - no booking required. If you don't have time to read the book, a summary will be available.

Email Sue Kay (s.kay@blueyonder.co.uk) or call DDE on 01392 438811 for enquiries.

An initiative of Devon Development Education, Global Book Club Plymouth is supported by the University of Plymouth.
