Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“By turns moving and scathingly satirical . . . Vassilikos has been so rarely translated into English; one can only hope this complex, multilayered novel will change that.”—Mary Park, The New York Times Book Review

A brilliant work of the imagination as well as an inspiring commentary on writing, the story follows a biographer’s investigation into the life and works of a famous, yet highly mysterious, deceased Greek writer, Glafkos Thrassakis. At the crossroads where magic realism and political fiction meet, Vassilis Vassilikos’s buoyant literary imagination successfully defies narrative structural conventions and common fiction grounds.

Vassilis Vassilikos is Greece’s most acclaimed novelist. His most famous novel, Z, has been translated into 32 languages.
