A young man sells his soul to a company that purveys dreams and desires. His downfall is slow to arrive but devastating when it finally does. Dimitris Sotakis, a writer who has a distinct preference for symbols and allegories, has made a Faustian tale with his new novel, The Miracle of Breath. In it the devil takes the form of a furniture removals company that delivers innumerable items to the hero’s house. Struggling for breath under the suffocating weight of so many useless objects, the protagonist loses everything he has. The tension slowly mounts as the hero becomes trapped in his enclosed world. In compelling images, the author builds up an atmosphere of depersonalization and disintegration, where the hero gradually cuts himself off from anything that might keep him in touch with the world around him, alienating his friends, family and lover. (Ithaca Online, www.ekebi.gr)
