The Love You Didn't Hear (Item# NOPSHAPDAKOU)
How far can someone go for love? True love, not casual, superficial love… The love that moves heaven and earth, gives birth to wars and brings chaos along with it. The one that overcomes any obstacle, accomplishes the impossible and has the power to create and destroy anything. The kind of love that Irene feels for Philip, her childhood companion, the man who embraces her disability and is the only man who accepts her exactly as she is. Philip too feels that kind of love, only not for Irene. Trapped in an eerie setting, a sunken ghost town that unintentionally is turned into a watery grave, Irene, Philip and the other individuals who are involved in their lives, become prey to their fears and their weaknesses, succumb to their innermost passions, fall in love, hurt, kill and sacrifice. In some cases even themselves. For the erotic call of some creatures is rare and unique and, unfortunately, eternally doomed never to be heard and to remain lost in the depth of loneliness. And so, yet again, the eternal question surfaces again: can someone escape that which the fates have defined? Can one triumph over loneliness and one’s difference? Can one swim against the current and, if so, at what price?
By Claire Theodorou. 424 pages. Paperback. Imported. Psichogios publications.
The City in Tears (Item# NOPSHPPDAK)
“I am sorry… Books with the essence of happiness are rare. Signiore Francesco says that they are so rare that you must pay a fortune to buy them. I, on the other hand, say that in order for a book of happiness to reveal itself to you, you must first have made your way through all the other essences. To have read many… otherwise how are you to know that that which you hold is happiness?” Venice. A bookstore very different from any other. A bookstore where you choose books based on the aroma (essence) that they smell and with the help of little Irene, who doesn’t know how to read. A captivating world, of countless editions, rare and new, which are delivered at midnight by gondola by a man dressed in black. Romanos, the Greek with heretic blood, searches old manuscripts and scrolls with a passion, at the same time dragging with him a catastrophic romance with beautiful Elisabeta. Behind the half-open grilles of a famous brothel, unnoticed by anyone, the Signiora pulls the strings and interferes with other people’s lives… But when the tide approaches and the waters of the lagoon rise, the city sheds tears to try and wash away a great sin that bears on the shoulders of the guilty and the innocent. A stunning novel about the mysterious world of human relations with the atmospheric and erotic city of Venice as its backdrop.
