This deeply human collection of short stories explores the institutions of family and friendship and the shaken sexual relationships of people fighting to survive Greece’s tough reality as they are pushed to the very brink. Against the background of a country in economic crisis, each story carves a sincere, dynamic path ending with a sense of harmony, justice, and optimism.
In Greece, nothing reminds us of America. Here, there is no Hollywood, Las Vegas, or Route 66 with motels built in the middle of nowhere. Here, everything seems different. Well, this is not America (or . . . is it?).
