Þórbergssetur

Þórbergur Þórðarson was one of Iceland's best loved authors. He wrote mostly biographies, memoirs, autobiographical novels, essays and poetry.
He grew up on the farm Hali in Suðursveit, where there is a museum dedicated to him. This is the museum building, painted to look like a bookcase:

We loved this museum. I wish more of his books were available in English.
