This review is from: Eurydice Street: A Place in Athens (Paperback)
I am a Greek who has lived in Britain for a very long time so this is why this book appealed to me. The author writes beautifully and the book just flows. She does really know life there first hand so her comments are real and I nod my head in agreement when I read them. The fact that her husband is Greek has made a difference here and she has had to immerse herself into the Greek life rather than seing things from a distance. Strongly recommend this book. It goes beyond the silly stereotypes of zorba the greek, plate smashing etc and gives the reader a flavour of the real life in Greece in recent times.
