From the publisher

Translated by Vala Thorodds 

In Forevernoon—a book of bright, bare language but epic scope—Ásta addresses the vulnerability of the body in its spiritual entanglement with the outside world. There is a lightness and freedom in these poems whose lines leap around the page in search of connections, reminding us of things we’d forgotten to remember: that ‘the mind is a net in the ocean’, that ‘moonlight is milk for nightcats’.

‘If the Icelandic poetry scene were a deck of cards, Ásta would be the ace of spades. The way she conjures up language, the grip she has on it and this strangely organic connection she has to it, is simply unmatched, completely unique. Forevernoon is an instant classic of the Icelandic avant-garde.’ – Eiríkur Örn Norðdahl

‘This book is a treasure map, perhaps even a recipe for new books, new stories. It is clear enough to come vividly to life in the mind’s eye while at the same time cryptic enough to create countless different stories in different heads.’ – Menningarsmygl
