Cunning, fantastical tales about a Greek village of the imagination, from a startling new talent

Panos Karnezis' remarkable stories are all set in the same nameless Greek village. His characters are the people who live there--the priest, the whore, the doctor, the seamstress, the mayor--and the occasional animal: a centaur, a parrot that recites Homer, a horse called History. Their lives intersect, as lives do in a small place, and they know each other's secrets: the hidden crimes, the mysteries, the little infamies that men commit.

Karnezis observes his villagers with a worldly eye, and creates a place where magic invariably loses out to harsh reality, a place full of passion, cruelty, and deep reserves of black humor. These stories recall the masters of the form--the wit and sophisticated playfulness of Saki and the primal fatalism of Prosper Merimee--but they are utterly original and prove that Karnezis is one of the freshest new voices in English fiction.
