A great novel, written according to the most genuine tradition of the genre; a novel in which a fascinating plot competes with fascinating social and psychological observations. This is a tale of dramatic conflicts taking place within a circle of people whose self-interest annuls any sense of altruism and pushes morbid passions to extremes. The central hero is Manos Tassakos, a novelist and lawyer. A dynamic conqueror, an amoral man, a ruthless experimenter with human weakness; at the same time, he is intelligent, ingenious, sensitive and humane, and certainly one of the most vivid characters of Modern Greek literature, who, we would like to think, continues his life beyond the pages in which Karagatsis first created him. “I could tell you the story of any one of my novels,” Karagatsis used to say, “with plenty of detail, within the space of half an hour. But I could never tell you the story of The Yellow Envelope! And it's not because there is no plot. On the contrary, the many different events tie in with one another with such thorough consistency, that if I were to leave out a single detail, my account would become incomprehensible. The Yellow Envelope is a novel that should be read – not a fairytale that can be told.”
