Απόσπασμα από το δημοσίευμα:

What happens when everything turns on the question of money — money you don’t have? Think of the compulsions that might overcome you. Ikonomou’s short stories describe the lives of Greeks coping with the economic fallout of the debt crisis. The people in his fiction discover that poverty is an instructor — a revealer of depths, a conjurer of fresh identities. In this collection, some characters are hardened by their experiences, some find courage, and some lose themselves in delusions. Each of their stories is gripping from the first to the last. —C.B.
