Following his death and burial, the hero and narrator of Like A Little Water returns to the place he was born, a village on the border of northern Greece. As he roams the site of his former happiness, he attempts to extract whatever he can from its boundless reserves. The narrator’s life has come to an end and the earth has claimed his body, but his spirit soars into the sky. From aloft he conducts an aerial tour of his childhood and adolescence. His posthumous account is a mix of fantasy and reality that acts as a form of redemption for all the things that he failed to know or to do in his lifetime. The hero’s emotions emerge in measured doses as Sotiris Dimitriou conjures up scenes of everyday life in the countryside with immediacy. He portrays the environment in lively detail, without resorting to the merely picturesque.
