Corinne G. Dempsey

  • The first comprehensive look at spirit practices that are alive and well in Iceland
  • The first work in English on andleg mal in Akureyri
  • Deals with supernatural phenomena in a manner that is neither confessional nor dismissive, striking a middle tone that is balanced and ultimately humanizing
