'There are countries of the imagination. There are soundscapes of the mind. There are emotional landscapes. In this personal geography it's time present and time past, here and now, there and then. Through layers of childhood, adolescence and maturity Frances explores the Iceland of her invention, uncovering mysteries of seismic struggle and domestic unrest, rediscovering and naming landmarks of memory. And on this map of the real and imagined world she traces a path for the future.'
