I can see that some people that have read this book in translation,didn t think much of it and I don t blame them.Though considered a classic of modern Greek literature,it can t get further from the local petty bourgeois microcosmos.After all,these are the merits for which it is praised the description of the life of this particular social class and the first expose in written prose of their distinctive mode of expression.

I ve been on a modern Greek kick lately The characters here are hard and so often so awful, but there s a beautiful vitality in the narrative that kept me consistently engaged It s prewar and wartime Athens and Thessaloniki, and the characters are just the nastiest, most deranged everyday people not sadists or psychopaths, just regular, down the street dysfunctionals with a belief in the validity of their own stories that made me believe too.
A great book presenting all the important historical events in Greece 2nd World War, civil war through the eyes of the main heroine and her three marriages.One of my favourite books written by one of the most controversial greek authors
One of my favorites.
