Abstract:

"Poet, musician, wit, and polemicist Bill Holm repairs to Brimnes, his fisherman's cottage on the shore of a fjord in northern Iceland. Looking west from this place of seemingly endless and kaleidoscopic light, and surrounded by little more than the sound of the sea and the birds beyond his windows, he considers America - "my home, my citizenship, my burden." In contrast with the warmth and genuine community of Iceland, its traditions of secularism, pacifism, and love of nature, poetry, and music, Holm sees an America in danger of betraying the ideals of liberty and freedom that animated its founding."--Jacket.
