Edward Weinman spent nearly one fourth of his life as an expat on Iceland, enduring many long, dark, cold, windy, gray winters. But he made it out alive, without kids, and having suffered only one nervous breakdown. His debut thriller, The Ring Road, is born out of his life in Reykjavik where he worked as a travel writer. His journalism has been picked up byThe Associated Press and The Sunday Times of London, among others. Edward co-wrote the film A Little Trip to Heaven, a psychological thriller starring Forest Whitaker, Jeremy Renner and Julia Stiles, which screened at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival. Edward earned his MFA in writing, literature and publishing from Emerson College in Boston.
The Ring Road, the first novel in the 66° North Series, is available January 7, 2013 from The Rogue Reader. Sign up for weekly updates and exclusive content from Ed and The Rogue Reader here, and connect with Ed on Twitter and Facebook.
“Ed Weinman’s novel is a hell of a trip—and a trip to Hell—through the unique landscape of Iceland and the no-less peculiar inner lives of some of its more colorful inhabitants (because, surely, Icelanders cannot all be this f**ked-up). A gripping tale laced with dark twisted humor, I couldn’t put it down. A Nordic Noir not for the faint of heart.” - Ro Cuzon, author of Under the Dixie Moon and Under the Carib Sun.
