My name is Alda Sigmundsdóttir and I am a writer and occasional journalist. I run my own little press, Little Books Publishing, based in Reykjavík, Iceland. I also give talks and offer commentary on Icelandic affairs.

I have written eight books, each of which explores an aspect of Icelandic culture or society. Three of those have been translated, one of them into a bunch of languages. My latest book deals with the implications of the current tourism boom in Iceland and is called The Little Book of Tourists in Iceland.

Feel free to poke around this website and contact me with any queries.
