My published book and reviews from the press in English translation

biblionet.gr :The Online official catalogue of the National Book Centre of Greece (EKEVI)

The City with the Bachelors, or rather, of the Singles
Published Collection of 6 Novellas & 1 Short Story.
Greek title: Η ΠΟΛΗ ΜΕ ΤΟΥΣ ΕΡΓΕΝΗΔΕΣ
published in 2005, Editions Ellinika Grammata, Athens, Greece

The setting is the city of Athens and in a train, the time is 1995-2005.
The atmosphere is film-noirish crossing over to the twilight zone.
The vocabulary is of desire and longing, of fears and ghostly companions to solitary people, whoever may be experiencing ‘singleness’ at any age in a big city.

A reviewer comments: “The lonely protagonists of these stories – that map the contemporary city with dramatic accuracy and narrative vigour – come across promising encounters. Will they manage to reach out? Or they will retreat to their imaginary worlds inhabited by Humphrey Bogart or Lou Reed?  To know the answer one should read the book!”
