Greek Short Story Collection Gains Notice
Christos Ikonomou’s All Good Things Will Come from the Sea, a short story collection about the Greek economic crisis, has recently sold in a number of international deals, being acquired in France (by Quidam) and Italy (by Editori Riuniti). The book was published in Greece by Polis in 2014, and rights are controlled by Evangelia Avloniti of the Athens-based Ersilia Literary Agency. The stories in the book follow a group of Athenians who, impacted by Greece’s financial collapse, move to an island in the Aegean sea in search of better prospects.”
