A Greek woman travels to modern-day Alexandria and Alexandria of Hellenistic times through a journey into memory. The woman with the ship on her head -the incarnation of Alexandria's naval superiority- comes alive once again in this landmark novella by Eleni Ladia (awarded with the 2007 National Short Story Award). Two love stories in the life of one woman intertwine and act as our guide, centuries before globalization, to the metropolis of universality. In the first story, a pair of pagans lives through the destruction of the temple of Serapis by enraged Christians. In the second, a pair of orthodox Christians is persecuted - along with Saint Athanasios the Great- by the followers of Arianism. The book closes as the female narrator leaves the city, taking with her corals and monsters.
