The Cat of Portovecchio

£17.00

  • Maria Strani-Potts
  • Brandl & Schlesinger

Exploring how characters’ lives intersect, these tales, narrated by a cat, focus on passion, lost love, a missing child, a priest with bad intentions, and families suffering. An insider’s view of Corfu society in a time of a great political upheaval in the 1950s is offered, while a picture is painted of life in a Greek fishing village post-World War II, rich in insights into traditions, customs, history, daily life, and local idiosyncrasies. With a distinctive voice that is both worldly and amused, these tales have a warm and witty understanding of the unique people.
