A good Greek girl does not disobey her parents. She accepts the proxy marriage they arrange for her. She does not go to parties with her girlfriends and then come home with a love bite. Above all, she does not lose her virginity to somebody who isn't her husband! We have a saying in Greek, which goes like this: Poutana zoe. Translation: Life's a bitch. And what a life it can be if, like the author, you're born female and Greek! Headstrong, opinionated and always at odds with her Greek parents, Alexandra left Australia at the age of 20 to travel to Greece, the country of her birth. Then she started the long journey of reconciling the two aspects of her life: Greek tradition with an Australian way of life. This is her story. It is about the dreams that go awry, the stumbles along the way and the events that can change life profoundly. Love, tragedy, tradition and culture, men, divorce, death and peace. This book has it all with a charming and endearing story of one woman's life that has many twists and turns.
