"There's nothing to match curling up with a good book

when there's a repair job to be done

around the house."

Joe Ryan



his name is Jorn Riel

I was so impressed I forgot to tell you his name!!!
Now, what a sad surprise, no books translated in English up to now...
Everything in French, some in Spanish, German, Italian, Greek and the other Scandinavian languages that's all...What a pity!.Even so, i'll must tell you about him...I got some help from the web, translating is sometimes a bit tiring though I love it
"Jørn Riel was born in Odense in 1939. From 1949 to 1951 he studied at the Nautical College in Copenhagen, after which he was a member of the two-year Lauge Koch expedition to Eastern Greenland. Jørn Riel lived in Greenland for ten years and then resumed his travels. 1964-71 he was Field Officer for the UN, stationed in the Middle East and Pakistan, also travelling in, among other places, Africa, the West Indies and Arctic Canada. Jørn Riel published his first book in 1970, En fortælling hvoraf man får et smukt ansigt (A Story from which you get a Beautiful Face), the first volume of a trilogy of novels which was completed during 1970-72 with Vorherres rævefælde (The Lord´s Fox Trap) and Det første af altings fest (The Celebration of the Very First Thing).
