An honest view of 'away-from-it-all' life in Greece today, as seen through the refreshingly unblinkered eyes of a very gifted author. An engaging, humour-spiced book that entertains and informs in equal measure. Highly recommended. --Peter Kerr, bestselling author of 'Snowball Oranges'
Marjory McGinn's laconic wit and delightful style brings the herb infused landscape of the Mani to life with a joyous ease… --Harry Bucknall, author of 'In the Dolphin s Wake'
Things Can Only Get Feta is an easy read in the very best sense, but its simplicity belies the deep insight it gives into the complexities of life in Greece and the often misunderstood nature of its people. --Richard Clark, author of the Greek Notebook series
Whether you know Greece or not you will enjoy the adventures of these intrepid travellers and the descriptions of the places they visit. Their various scrapes are recounted with wit and verve and the writing style is extremely accessible. --Gillian Bouras, award-winning Australian author of Aphrodite and the Others
About the Author
Marjory McGinn is a Scottish-born journalist who has worked for the past 30 years in newspapers in the UK, and in Australia. On her return to Scotland in 2000, she worked as a freelance feature writer for various major publications, including the Scotsman, the Daily Mail and The Times. Her interest in Greece dates back to her first visits there in her twenties, and having travelled widely throughout the country, she now maintains a regular blog and website, detailing her adventures there, along with her partner and her famously mad Jack Russell dog, Wallace.

The author takes us on a journey populated by warm and friendly villagers, quirky ex-pats and plenty of goats, through a beautiful, ancient landscape.
Greece is going through one of its most dire periods, but it has survived darker times in the past. The spirit of the people - their warmth, generosity, stoicism and grace - comes through in McGinn's book.
Things Can Only Get Feta is an uplifting story for troubled times. I do hope we hear more from Marjory McGinn in the Mani in the not-too-distant future.
