Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Ulf Bjorklund

Narrator Ulf Bjorklund takes listeners on a leisurely stroll through a small Icelandic town. The performance is composed of several short stories featuring various townsfolk that give listeners windows into each of their lives. From the neighborhood gossipers to pensive resident scientists to nosy postmen, every relationship is intimately performed, and discovering the connections from one story to the next creates a complete vision of the community. Every chapter is narrated so poetically that listeners will be left wanting more. This unforgettable performance captures both the looming death and the charm of this small town. G.M.
