Great review of THE SECRET SISTER in The Independent

cover-secret-sister1

We are delighted to share with you a great review of Fotini Tsalikoglou’s novella, THE SECRET SISTER (Europa Editions, 2015) in The Independent:

“… a fascinating insight into the present-day Greek psyche through an individual: contested borders, dislocation, and an unreliable, dissolved sense of self.

This is Tsalikoglou’s first book to be translated into English, although she is much-celebrated in Greece. The Secret Sister, brought to us by Europa Editions, is about the legacy of trauma. It gives us a powerful taste of the writing that has been fired into existence in Greece by the dramatic changes of late, and it leaves me, for one, wanting to read much more.”

cover-secret-sister1

We are delighted to share with you a wonderful review of Fotini Tsalikoglou’s novel, THE SECRET SISTER (Europa Editions, 2015) in Abu Dhabi’s English-language newspaper, The National:

“The Secret Sister is a mesmerising read; a psychologically rich and haunting study of things “lost in silence” within one family, the individual trials they suffer mirrored and magnified in the larger conflict and hardship suffered by their homeland over the course of the 20th century.”
