    Over the course of four dazzling novels translated into dozens of languages, Sjón has earned a global reputation as one of the world’s most interesting writers. But what the world has never been able to read is his great trilogy of novels, known collectively as CoDex 1962 - now finally complete. Josef Löwe, the narrator, was born in 1962 - the same year, the same moment even, as Sjón. Josef’s story, however, stretches back decades in the form of Leo Löwe - a Jewish fugitive during World War II who has an affair with a maid in a German inn.

    Mani Steinn is queer in a society in which the idea of homosexuality is beyond the furthest extreme. His city, Reykjavik in 1918, is homogeneous and isolated and seems entirely defenseless against the Spanish flu, which has already torn through Europe, Asia, and North America and is now lapping up on Iceland's shores. And if the flu doesn't do it, there's always the threat that war will spread all the way north. And yet the outside world has also brought Icelanders cinema!

    I året 1635 er jorden stadig universets centrum, islandsk enhjørningehorn er en efterspurgt luksusvare, og visse sten anses for helbredende. Med afsæt i den historiske skikkelse, islændingen Jon Gudmundssons liv og værk, fortæller Tusmørkeundere den fænomenale historie om bevægelsen fra den gamle, magiske verden med Maria-dyrkelse og fordrivelser af genfærd, til reformationens nye verden hvor mennesket er altings midtpunkt, men hvor næstekærligheden har trange kår.
