A totally beguiling book,
By A Customer
This review is from: Eurydice Street: A Place in Athens (Hardcover)
Funny, fascinating, very moving, honest, brave, resourceful, original, intrepid, incredibly readable, very well informed, generous, warm-hearted, clever, candid, engaged with a Greek world which the author loves, doubts, queries and cherishes. Sofka Zinovieff has brought off an incredibly difficult thing in this book: integrating her own hopes and fears with those of her chosen country, making one story of their different pasts and their shared present, and all with such grace and life.
