Inspired by true events, this book is essentially the account of an intense love triangle among a mature playboy and two young ladies: a charming and intellectually gifted writer, and a bold bisexual student of astounding beauty. As the plot gradually escalates to a dramatic climax, the reader might also enjoy the captivating human stories, the unlikely friendships and alliances, as well as a philosophical approach concerning how to live and how to die, while having a glimpse at Mykonos' globally famous hedonistic lifestyle in the late seventies. Finally, the witty and lively writing style of Zahos Hadjifotiou makes difficult for the reader to put this book down. Preface One of the most famous Greek islands, Mykonos has been a point of reference to the author Zahos Hadjifotiou since his young age: he used to visit it every summer and he has owned a large estate for many years. As a result not only did he experience some colorful adventures, but he has also developed a profound knowledge and respect for the local people and their habits. This book is an "almost" true story, that the author lived in Mykonos which he very much loves and knows. The individuals described were real and so are their names, with a few exceptions. The events of the book took place in the late seventies- so a long time has passed since then. Mykonos has grown from a popular resort to one of the top tourist destinations worldwide (needless to say, the island offers today plenty of accommodation and an organized transport network to suit every need. And discreet nudism is no longer punished by law). Mykonos still boasts a magnificent scenery, dominated by a distinctive breathtaking whiteness. The sea is as blue, inviting and refreshing as it has always been. And for the more adventurous, the party is always on! So people keep coming to the island, to experience firsthand the beauties and the tales they have heard about. After reading this book, maybe you too would like to join them. Enjoy!
