The Whispering Muse is a quirky, melodic, ticklish, seamlessly translated, lovingly polished gem of a novel. (David Mitchell)
An extraordinary, powerful fable--a marvel. (Alberto Manguel)
Sjón is the trickster that makes the world, and he is achingly brilliant. (Junot Díaz)
When I need something epic and lyrical I call upon Sjón. (Björk)
Sjón's writing [is] full of brilliant details, surprises and delights . . . [He is] an extraordinary and original writer. (A. S. Byatt, The Guardian)
