Bjarni Bjarnason was born in 1965 in Reykjavik, Iceland, but grew up abroad. His poems were published in National magazines and newspapers while he was still in his teens. He wrote his first play by time he was twenty, and shortly thereafter first volume of poetry titled Upphafi. To date, Bjarnason has written a collection of short stories, collection of one act play, two books of poetry, ten novels, one collection of essays on Literature and society, and Dream-Journal. Nominate for the Icelandic Literary Prize in 1996, Bjarnasons ' second novel Endurkoma Mariu tells of the grandson of an esteemed theologian who meets a mysterious young woman afflicted by visions, and around whom strange things happen. Her striking resemblance to bless Virgin prompts the professor to declare that Virgin Mary has Return, for which he is subsequently expelled from university. Bjarnason has said that he initially had no intention of writing about the Holy Mother, but once he became aware of similarities, story take on biblical dimension. All in all, this impressive work is part romance, part thriller and part theological speculation. It follows Icelandic narrative tradition, which, according to Bjarnason, only reveals itself if-unlike most Literary works produced on the Island-it refrains from referring to Iceland as this mystical and exotic place; which is myth in itself. For his novel Borgin bak vi, published in 1998, Bjarni Bjarnason received a Tomas Gumundsson Award. Manntukonan og maur hennar received the Halldor Laxness Literature Award in 2001. Mannor examines the Icelandic financial crisis, in which the novel's hero, Starkaur Levi, plays the decisive role. Some years later, he attempted to restore his reputation-at any cost-in order to be accepted by society. Bjarnasons most recent novel Halfsnert stulka uses psychoanalytic rhetoric to examine death and loss, and eventualities of encountering specters of conscious and unconscious mind. Time is an important element in all his novels; their imagery is influenced by ancient myths and invested in fairy tale atmosphere while simultaneously referring to modern phenomena, according to publication History of Icelandic Literature. Bjarni Bjarnason books have been translated into four languages; Faroese, Arabic, English and German. He co-found Literary magazine Andblr in 1994, which primarily publishes works by young writers. The author lives with his wife, Katrin Juliusdottir, Icelands former minister of finance, and their four boys, in Reykjavik.
