Ice Palace, Paperback Book



A new edition of what is commonly seen as the legendary Norwegian writer's masterpiece, this story tells the tale of Siss and Unn, two friendswho have only spent one evening in each other's company.

But so profound is this evening between them that when Unn inexplicably disappears, Siss's world is shattered.

Siss's struggle with her fidelity to the memory of her friend and Unn's fatal exploration of the strange, terrifyingly beautiful frozen waterfall that is the Ice "Palace" are described in prose of a lyrical economy that ranks among the most memorable achievements of modern literature."
