    The Icelandic sagas are epic stories composed during the Middle Ages, filled with extreme violence, heroic Viking deeds and deadly feuds. Remarkably, they are also drawn from true stories. Co-written by two friends – ABC Radio host Richard Fidler and writer and academic Kári Gíslason – Saga Land takes their mutual fascination with these sagas as its starting point. Told in alternating chapters,Fidler and Gíslasonrecord their journey through Iceland as they follow the geographical resonances of the country’s folklore, refreshing the sagas for a contemporary readership, and exploring the complexities of Gíslason’s own family saga. Both passionate Icelandophiles and erudite thinkers, Fidler and Gíslason’s Saga Land is a fascinating record of their mutual obsession.
