The losses, dramas and enthusiasms, great and small, of everyday life in the Greek provinces after the Second World War come to life in this collection of short stories. In the role of the watchful observer, the writer knows how to zoom in on and distill the essence of chance events, those fleeting moments that can reveal an entire universe. Ilias Papadimitrakopoulos draws on memories of the occupation and the civil war, as well as gentler scenes of families at home and postwar seaside resorts, of first loves, and the leisurely pace of provincial life before it gave way to the frenetic rhythms and anxiety of contemporary society. With an eye for the detail that casts light on the hidden side of reality, he offers glimpses of a world now submerged in the past. His style is concise and expressive in stories enlivened a discreet vein of irony and self-mockery.
