Panos Karnezis' remarkable stories are all set in the same nameless Greek village. His characters are the people who live there - the priest, the barber, the whore, the doctor, the seamstress, the mayor - and the occasional animal: a centaur, a parrot that recites Homer, a horse called History. Their lives intersect, as lives do in a small place, and they know each other's secrets - the hidden crimes, the mysteries, the little infamies that men commit. Karnezis observes his villagers with a forgiving eye, and creates a world where magic invariably loses out to harsh reality, a world at once universal, funny and utterly compelling.… (més)

This book is a collection of short - often very short - stories about the inhabitants of a Greek village. Each story is about some sort of "infamy" - with characters from murderers and thieves to others who live on the margins of society - gypsies, prostitutes, circus folk. It's an easy book to read - the stories are light and laced with black humour and a tinge of magical realism - but overall, it felt like this could have been a book about the residents of any backward Southern European village - it wasn't particularly Greek or particularly rooted in a sense of place. The tone, I think, was affectionate rather than patronising, but ultimately this seemed to me like the sort of book an English person would pack to read on their Mediterranean beach holiday. ( )

Beautiful prose poems of connected stories following the people living and travelling through a poor hill Greek village of the 50's.

They start with a earthquake and end with a flood and mender through the fates of twins, the visit of the Bishop, the crafty escaping criminal, the arrival of the bus. Small incidents but memorable characters and images. Look out for any of his novels and enjoy. ( )

Engulfed by fear and suspicion, mind agitated, eyes alarmed, we try desperately to invent ways out, plan how to avoid the obvious danger that threatens us so terribly.  Yet we're mistaken, that's not the danger ahead: the news was wrong (or we didn't hear it, or didn't get it right).  Another disaster, one we never imagined, suddenly, violently, descends upon us, and finding us unprepared - there's no time now - sweeps us away.
-- C.P. Cavafy

Since dawn the air had the sultriness of fermenting juices and later, just before lunch, the dog started barking for no reason and did not stop until Father Yerasimo chased her away with stones.
