Dagens citat

"With the success and attention Iceland got at the Euros we have felt a significant increase in interest in our authors and works, which is very enjoyable. ... Of course publishers and readers want to know more about the country after the success of the football team, and one of the best ways to get to know a country and its people is through its literature, so in a way this is very understandable, as the football team and its supporters made headlines in world news for a couple of weeks."

Egill Örn Jóhannsson, chef för Forlagið, i The Guardian om det ökade intresset för isländsk litteratur efter fotbolls-EM.
