Greece. Bitter Oranges (Grecja. Gorzkie pomarańcze), Dionisios Sturis
published by W.A.B., Warsaw

Book by a Greek, who is a Polish journalist as well, travelling to the motherland of his ancestors during a strong wave of protests. An economic crisis against the background of the 20th-century history of Greece is, however, not the only issue covered by his account. He writes also about a tragedy of refugees arriving at the coast of Greece and about Ikaria, an island which in the world of tensions and chaos seems to be an oasis of calm and longevity. Sturis talks about his own Greek-Polish identity, about a peculiar mentality of the inhabitants of this region and within his story, pride of an ancient past blends with complexes and an immense will to live.
[Piotr Mitzner]
