Summary
"El<U+00d4>in J<U+00d4>onsd<U+00d4>ottir lives an isolated existence in Reykjav<U+00d4>ik, Iceland, making props and prosthetics for theatrical productions and Nordic crime flicks. In her early seventies, she has recently become fascinated with another loner, Ellen <U+00d4>Alfsd<U+00d4>ottir, a sensitive young playwright and illegitimate daughter of a famous writer. The girl has aroused maternal feelings in El<U+00d4>in, but she has also stirred discomfiting memories long packed away. Because their paths have crossed before. One doesn't remember. The other is about to forget."--Provided by publisher
