Water on the Face is a journey through dreams and nightmares taken by a painter, writer and singer. It is recounted in 12 brief stories and accompanied by 32 colour illustrations. Nikos Houliaras interleaves carefree images of natural surroundings and the Greek countryside with harsh contemporary urban scenes. Memory is the dominant function in this ongoing conversation between the past and the present. The narrator endeavours to settle various accounts, but remains till the end in a permanently unsettled state, which creates a compelling sense of suspense and uncertainty. Life in the city, presented as it is against a strange backdrop, suddenly takes on a totally distorted and irrational existence. Everyday situations unexpectedly reveal a paradoxical and dangerously overheated centre. The writer deploys comedy and drama in a narrative that masterfully unites its contrasting elements.
