The Few Things I Know About Glafkos Thrassakis by Vassilis Vassilikos
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Translated by Karen Emmerich Published in Greece in 1978 and never before translated into English, this novel is widely considered one of Vassilikos's finest. Brilliant and inspiring, the story is told in the voice of a mysterious, deceased Greek writer's biographer. As his research unfolds and the biography develops, the boundary between the fictive and the real fuse together, until the narrator ends in questioning the very existence of Glafkos. Irreverent and comically absurd, this masterpiece stands at the crossroads of magic realism and political fiction.
