Einar Már Gudmundsson (1954) is one of the leading writers of his generation in Iceland.
His first books, a collection of poetry, were published in 1980, but he is also known as a novelist. For his book Angels of the Universe (1993) the author received the Nordic Council Literature Prize in 1995. In 2012 Einar Már was awarded the Swedish Academy’s Nordic Prize for his contribution to literature. His books have been translated into many languages.
Einar Már has written novels, short stories and poetry, and attracted widespread attention in the bank crash’s aftermath for his writings on societal issues. His latest book Hundadagar („Dogdays“) is due to be released this autumn.
