Eiríkur Örn Norðdahl (1978) is an Icelandic poet, translator and author of four novels.
For his most recent novel, Illska (Evil, 2012), he was awarded the Icelandic Literary Prize and The Icelandic Book Merchants' Prize.
In 2012 Eiríkur was the poet-in-residence at The Library of Water.
Sometimes Eiríkur makes (award-winning!) animated poetry and quite often he performs (mind-blowing!) sound poetry at festivals of art, music and poetry.
His forthcoming book of poems, Hnefi eða vitstola orð (Fist or words bereft of sense), will be his sixth.
His book of poetics, Booby, Be Quiet! (2010) is available in English print from poEsia press or as a free download: www.poesia.fi/booby-be-quiet.
