Small Traffic Ring: New Athenian Stories by Kostas Katsoularis offers eleven tales about the city of Athens, seen from eleven different viewpoints. As the author explores the sprawling city, he brings to light its hidden sides, uncovering the strange things that lie behind its familiar facade. In each story he employs a different technique, a different approach to comprehending reality, but in all the tales he creates the effect of snapshots of a city that is forever on the go. Brief, vivid images succeed one another in cinematic style as the heroes, whether in the foreground or on the sidelines, seek their fate in the city’s wide open spaces and interior spaces, which are the setting for their everyday clashes and disputes. Concise, eloquent human sketches and a sense that the horizon keeps moving away for the observer keep the tension up from page to page and story to story. (
