Icelandic-American writer Margrét Ann Thors takes readers on a surprising ride from Reykjavík to Colorado through her imaginative translations. The essay, though beautiful and amusing, touches on such heavy subjects as abortion, mass shootings and serious medical conditions.

In gorgeous language, this essay will have you wondering how the author managed to weave all these subjects into one piece. We will help you unpack Gun Bubbles in Episode 15 of The Personal Element.
