English translation of my first petry colletion, “Eru koparrør í himmiríki” (2012), published by The Operating System, New York, US, 20th January 2020. Translated from Faroese by Matthew Landrum.
“The powerful and expressive language in the poems made the collection a spectacular debut for Katrin Ottarsdóttir. In 2013 Are there Copper Pipes in Heaven was awarded the National Faroese Book Award, and it will remain a landmark and a classic in Faroese poetry from the 21st century.”
