Koustoumi sto choma

19,32 €
[ A costume in mud ]
Published also in English under the title "Suit in the Earth"

Kyriakos Roussias emigrated to America when he was fifteen. He won’t speak much about his family nor about the past. Now, at age forty-three, he lives in Gaithersburg and works as a researcher for the National Health Institute at Frederick. Without prior notice, he returns to his home village, Pagomeno, for the first time in the summer of ’98. He spends the whole of August there in the mountains, looking for another Kyriakos Roussias - his cousin and the killer of his father. Old blood binds them together and keeps them apart - the old blood of seven relatives, not merely of one. They are both consumed by the same fire. Day by day, the distance between Roussias of Frederick and Roussias of the plateau of Pagomeno becomes smaller.

Critics:
‘’When a novel offers a ‘rich’ reading, when it gives you such joy that you want to sip it word by word or to go back and reread parts before you have even finished it because the freshness and the accuracy of description takes you by surprise, then you know well that something truly remarkable is happening in new Greek fiction in new Greek fiction. This novel is Little England by Ioanna Karistiani. It is quality narrative that reads with immense pleasure and flows with unexpected easiness[...] Ioanna Karistiani is undoubtedly a great hope for Greek fiction’’
Yianis Tsiolis, To Vima, for the book Little England - Greek National Fiction Award 1998.

Ioanna Karystiani was born in Chania, Crete in 1952 of Asia Minor parentage. She has studied Law. She worked as cartoonist for a number of years. Now she is working at The scripts for Brides and Eda, Mi Estrella, films in the making (production by Martin Scorsese).

Ο Κυριάκος Ρουσιάς πήγε στην Αμερική στα δεκαπέντε του. Στα σαράντα τρία του μένει στο Γκαίηθερσμπεργκ και δουλεύει στο Φρέντερικ, ερευνητής στο Εθνικό Ινστιτούτο Υγείας. Δεν πολυμιλάει για το σόι του, δεν πολυμιλάει για τα παλιά. Το καλοκαίρι του '98, απροειδοποίητα, επιστρέφει στο χωριό του για πρώτη φορά. Και πέφτει πάνω στον άλλο Κυριάκο Ρουσιά. Ακούει εκείνη τη φωνή που τρυπούσε το ρόδι και ξεφλούδιζε το πετραμύγδαλο. Ψάχνει κάποια Μάρω με μια ελιά σα δάκρυ στην πίσω μεριά της γάμπας. Αναρωτιέται πώς είναι το βλέμμα του ανθρώπου τη στιγμή που παίρνει μια μοιραία απόφαση.
Σελίδες για τις απάτητες διαδρομές του μυαλού.
Για τα απαγορευμένα συναισθήματα.
Για το ίδιο κάρβουνο που καίει δυο άντρες.
