About the Author

Ioanna Karystiani was born on the island of Crete, Greece, in the town of Chania and now lives in Athens. Her literary debut came with the collection of short stories, I kyria Kataki (Ms. Kataki). She has since written three novels, all of which have been translated into several languages. She wrote the screenplay for The Brides, directed by Pandelis Vulgaris and produced by Martin Scorsese, and Estrella mi vida, directed by Costa Gavras. She received the Greek state prize for literature and the Athenian Academy prize for her first novel, and the Diavaso literature prize for her second.

Reviews

"Karystiani movingly pays homage to the sea and those who live from it."-"La Repubblica"

"This book, which envelops the reader in an atmosphere that is profoundly Hellenic, was born from sea stories born on the islands of Andros, Tinos, Cephalonia, and Corfu; Karystiani has re-elaborated them in a style that is limpid, lyrical, and richly suggestive."- "Il sole 24 ore"
