This review is from: All Windows Open: and Other Stories (Kindle Edition)
Although I have never been to suburban Australia (and have no Greek ancestry!) these characters ring absolutely true - you only have to have been young and fallen in love with an unattainable dream to relate. But the settings and detail are also fascinating - I sort of feel I DID grow up Greek in Melbourne after living through Chrissie's coming of age with her. Cleverly constructed with parallel stories and different voices woven together, the story is told in a modern, almost episodic way like a good TV drama. I was gripped from start to finish.
