Bill Holm is one of a kind. A Minnesotan of Icelandic ancestry, his travels have taken him all over the world, providing the material for a number of rich and memorable books. In The Windows of Brimnes, Holm travels to Brimnes, his fisherman's cottage on the shore of a creek in northern Iceland. From there, he considers the fate of America-"my home, my citizenship, my burden"-in these provocative essays.
