Gljúfrasteinn

Gljúfrasteinn is a house in Mosfellsdalur, east of Reykjavík, Iceland. It was the home of Halldór Kiljan Laxness, a 1955 Nobel Prize for Literature winner, for 53 years. He moved there in 1945 and lived there until his death in 1998. The Icelandic government now runs a museum about Laxness and his life in the house.
