AUTHOR BIO: Einar Kvaran, a leading Icelandic novelist and critic, emigrated to Canada in the 1880s, where he edited the pivotal Icelandic-Canadian newspaper Logberg and took a prominent role in Icelandic-Canadian community and political affairs; in 1891 he was selected President of the Icelandic Liberal Association of Manitoba. He returned to Iceland about 1895, after a ten year residency in Canada (Kristjanson). Einar Hjörleifsson Kvaran was earlier known as Einar Hjörleifsson, and while some bibliographies and reference use both names, others do not. Stefan Einarson, in his History of Icelandic Prose Writers (Cornell University Press, p. 237) states that "Einar H. Kvaran, in America [read Canada] 1885-95 wrote his first masterpiece, Vonir (1890) in Winnipeg over a purely Icelandic-American [read Canadian] motif". N° de réf. du libraire 32680
