    Sometimes grim, sometimes uproarious, and always captivating, Iceland's Bell by Nobel Laureate Halldor Laxness is at once an updating of the traditional Icelandic saga and a caustic social satire. At the close of the 17th century, Iceland is an oppressed Danish colony, suffering under extreme poverty, famine, and plague.
