Description

Graffiti, those humblest words offered up in clandestine anonymity, have always provided a release for those who repress desires, insults or convictions. And Athens, where Petrie Harbouri's first novel is set, is a city rich in graffiti. It is also a city where the trammels of gender and the status quo are not always readily thrown off. Tasos, middle-aged, Greek and not very verbal, has recently seen his marriage to Marianna wrecked by his passion for Leonora - only, too slow on the uptake, he has lost them both. Into his life sidles English Felix - gay, insecure, profusely verbal, yet somehow comforting. In her novel, Petrie Harbouri examines the hows and whys of the love that develops between the two men - human, fallible and stumbling. And she explores what happens subsequently to Marianna and Leonora, bringing to life this engaging circle of characters who dance unforgettably in the shadow of the Acropolis.show more
