The Blue Fox by Sjon

Read: 10 December, 2009

In 19th century Iceland, a priest hunts for a mythical blue fox and a girl with Down’s Syndrome is mourned by her admirer. These two seemingly unrelated stories interweave into a poetic whole.

It’s an enchanting tale, a modern myth, that might have worked nearly as well in verse. The story is short, easily read in an hour or two, and interesting lyrical look into Iceland’s recent past.
