The Windows of Brimnes

I just finished The Windows of Brimnes: An American in Iceland by Minnesota poet and essayist Bill Holm. The view from his getaway cabin in remote Northern Iceland provides Holm with the inspiration for ruminations on ancestry, music, religion, the state of the world, etc. The essay on silence and noise is worth the price of the book. Great food for thought.
