Synopses & Reviews
A well received collection of stories from a young Greek author, which featured in several 2002 Book of the Year round-ups. "An astonishing and brilliant achievement by an exceptional and unique young writer" Ben Rice. "Has captured the spirit of his people and spoken for them in a spellbinding, universal voice" "The Times". "an entirely individual writer in complete command of his material" "Sunday Times".
These stories are all set in the same nameless Greek village, a world where magic invariably loses out to harsh reality, a world at once universal, funny and compelling. The villagers' lives intersect, as lives do in a small place, and they all know each other's secrets - all the little infamies.
