Set against Iceland's stark landscape, Hannah Kent brings to vivid life the story of Agnes, who, charged with the brutal murder of her former master, is sent to an isolated farm to await execution. Horrified at the prospect of housing a convicted murderer, the family at first avoids Agnes. Only Tóti, a priest Agnes has mysteriously chosen to be her spiritual guardian, seeks to understand her. But as Agnes's death looms, the farmer's wife and their daughters learn there is another side to the sensational story they've heard. Riveting and rich with lyricism, BURIAL RITES evokes a dramatic existence in a distant time and place, and asks the question: How can one woman hope to endure when her life depends upon the stories told by others?

About the Author

Ханна Кент родилась в 1985 году в Аделаиде, Южная Австралия. О судьбе Агнес Магнусдоттир она услышала, будучи совсем юной, в Исландии, где побывала в рамках программы школьного обмена Rotary. Через несколько лет эта трагическая история стала основой ее первой книги — "Вкус дыма", получившей целый ряд престижных премий и изданной общим тиражом более трех миллионов экземпляров на двадцати двух языках. Ханна живет в Мельбурне, работает издательским директором австралийского литературного журнала Kill Your Darlings. Осенью 2016 года выходит ее вторая книга
