"Autobiography of a Book is a brilliant reconstruction (or perhaps deconstruction) of the life and history of the town of Komotini... This remarkable novel succeeds where many historical works do not in setting the Jewish experience in Northern Greece in a broader and vividly imagined social and ethnic content..."
Mark Mazower

"Fais' Autobiography of a Book reminds us that in the course of a few weeks in 1943 Germans led the Jewish population in Thrace en masse to its destruction, while Muslim women clattered tin and copper ustensils to fend off the Bulgarian occupation..."
Artemis Leondis, Prof. of Modern
Greek Literature, University of Michigan

"..a clear and sombre introspection reminscent of Thomas Bernhard's prose.."
Marie-Stephane Devaud,
Newspaper Tageblatt, 20-6-1997

"...set in Komotini in Thrace, a region characterized historically by its heterogeneity and fought over in the 20th century by the Ottoman Empire, Greece and Bulgaria...the novel juxtaposes purported testimonies with newspaper articles and contains alternative versions of events from which the reader may choose, thereby undermining the absolute divisions of testimony and fiction and giving rise to perspectival shifts..."
Robert Shannan Peckham
