A prize-winning novel of untamed murder, sex, and Christianity in
thefrozen landscapes and treacherous waters of Iceland
"Translated from the French by Hester Velmans"
Years ago, a group left Europe to start a colony in Iceland. But
as the years wore on, communication between the colony and the
people back home stopped. Had the people of New Thule have gone
native-or, worse yet, gone pagan? A cardinal ordered an evangelical
mission in order to see what has become of the people, and to
revive their faith.
But the "Short Serpent," the mission's ship, carried its crew
toward a horror that no one could conceive. Told in an elegant,
compulsive, and increasingly unhinged style, Bernard du Boucheron's
"The Voyage of the Short Serpent" is a masterpiece about mutable
human morality in inhuman conditions-a story about truth,
obsession, and the myth of utopia.
