Product description

Review

A beautifully written and timely book that brings into dramatic focus the tragedy of Greece's recent history. --John Humphreys

A fiercely absorbing, passionate novel.--Guardian

I can t remember when I was so totally absorbed by a book... Enthralling, moving and wise.--Cressida Connolly

A captivating novel that embraces the last turbulent 70 years of Greek history. --Mariella Frostrup

Zinovieff s portrayal of Greece is beautiful and believable, engaging all the senses.--Spectator

An engrossing saga of a family riven by ideological conflict and fractured by war. --Observer

A broad and enriching story of the early 20th century in Greece... An expansive historical framework governs the action of this impressive debut, but it is Zinovieff's scrupulous eye for cultural curiosity which gives the story its sinew and underlying humility. --The Independent

An arresting, finely woven first novel. --The Economist

That rare thing: a beautifully written novel which is a great read. It is also a compelling guide to the last sixty years of Greek history at this very troubled time for Europe and for all of us. --Vesna Goldsworthy, Author of Chernobyl Strawberries

A broad and enriching story of the early 20th century in Greece... The significance of worry beads; the protracted rites of grieving forced upon Greek widows; the carob trees that line the streets of Athens. An expansive historical framework governs the action of this impressive debut, but it is Zinovieff's scrupulous eye for cultural curiosity which gives the story its sinew and underlying humility. --Independent

An arresting, finely woven first novel which... offers compelling insight into the pathologies that Greeks still bring to their relations with outsiders. --The Economist

I can't remember when I was so totally absorbed by a book... Enthralling, moving and wise. --Cressida Connolly

An engrossing saga of a family riven by ideological conflict and fractured by war --Observer

Zinovieff s portrayal of Greece is beautiful and believable, engaging all the senses --Spectator
