Reviews


Miller captures the spirit and warmth of the resilient Greek people in his story of a wartime journey from Athens to Crete. (National Geographic)

Miller's Colossus of Maroussi, a paean to Greece drawn out of a nine-month visit...is the gestation time for a human and, in Miller's case, for the imaginative re-creation of a country, a culture and his own fierce energies. (Richard Eder, The New York Times)
