"I am reading a rare Esperanto translation of Thorbergur Thordarson's delirious, semi-autobiographical epic, Letters to Laura, which I managed to unearth in Reykjavik last summer. Thordarson was a radical satirist and the unparalleled gonzo emeritus of Icelandic letters. He also devoted his life to Esperanto, the artificial language of world peace, and very little of his work is available in English. My knowledge of Esperanto is still not what it should be, but I'm learning all sorts of new and strange words as I read about Thordarson's unbridled male-pregnancy fantasies. Some delightful, late-summer reading to go with your vinaterta."
