REVIEW Atómstöðin FREE READ ´ PLUSPRODUCTIONS.CO ☆ Halldór Laxness Halldór Laxness ☆ 1 DOWNLOAD When the Americans make an offer to buy land in Iceland to build a NATO airbase after the Second World War a storm of protest is provoked throughout the country Narra. Part political satire part town versus country lament and part Cold War curio The Atom Station is not an easy book for the modern reader to get a purchase on subplots about Icelandic foreign policy and obscure rhetorical flourishes about bohemian gods make the early parts of the novel an uphill battle and some strands just fail to connect Then again it s unlikely you ll have read anything uite like this for a whileThe plot is animated by Icelandic opposition to the establishment by a foreign power of an atom station on Icelandic territory The English translation of this term is very unenlightening what is an at mst anyway Michael Faber in his review for The Guardian assumes that it s a nuclear power station but that s surely not right the impression is rather of an atomic military base the US does in fact have a Navy airbase at Keflav k which was established during the Second World War The Atom Station was published in 1948 a few years later Laxness s friend and fellow writer rbergur r arson would also make reference in his work to the buildings on Keflav k airport which are supposed to defend the world Probably The Nuclear Base would be a better English title Anyway if you have an interest in Cold War geopolitics this makes for a fascinating case study from the very edge of Europe where the clash between East and West between capitalism and communism underlies every conversation in the bookInto this febrile environment comes our na ve ingenuous narrator Ugla owl actually a direct cognate of the English word who has travelled to Reykjav k from the rural north to work as a housemaid for a government minister This allows Laxness to show up all the sophisticated politics for what they really are in her eyes namely hypocrisy and nonsense But to describe Ugla as na ve perhaps gives the wrong impression She s not worldly wise but she s no delicate flower either rather a tall strapping country lass who gives as good as she gets Just like you northerners to start talking to people the cook chides her after she makes conversation with the minister s family Ugla shoots back at once I am people She may not know a lot about politics but she soon has the measure of her host family there s a sharp reference to the minister s wife sitting around in bed all morning glowing with happiness that there should be no justice in the world Meanwhile the artists and leftists that Ugla meets around town are struggling with the postwar environment in their own way trying to understand what role art can have in a world coming to terms with the
