MEDIA REVIEWS
"Masterful . . . language and an unusually keen insight into the contemporary sensibility of his people." --Edmund Keeley

"Valtinos is light of touch, clear, precise, lucid. The story is clear on the page, undistorted by the prose of its telling. . . . This must be one of the best prose translations of the century." --Harvard Review

"Thanks to an idiosyncratic, always intriguing, and consistently challenging literary discourse, Thanassis Valtinos has established himself as the most successful and innovative contemporary Greek storyteller." --Modern Greek Studies
