Bad Weather is the chronicle of an unexpected summer on a Greek island -a summer which is transformed into winter, subverting all the facts. Victoria, who plans to write a novel, goes away to the island of Tiflonissi, watching the stories of other people. Through this process in writing, the people -a big summer company- come close and then draw apart, fighting and falling in love with or even without passion. Reality is confused with illusion, friendship is tested, and love dies along with the summer, when everything appears to be precarious, fragile and ambiguous. The storm, which breaks out, resembles a storm of the soul. A whole generation swirls about in the pages of this book, full of questions, recollections, anxieties: what's to become of us? Has anyone ever really loved us? Where did we go wrong? Why should we grow up?
This third novel by Amanda Michalopoulou is a mural of the Greek society and European experience since the sixties. It is a book about what it means to live in a complex world, which becomes even more complex and interesting, as time goes by.
Moreover, it is the story of a collective restlessness, with no answer, or end.
