The famous Greek shipping family of Kulukundis is the source of inspiration for a clever combination of travel book, autobiography, and collection of the family’s stories. The tales told by Elias Kulukundis of his family in exile recreate his ancestors’ life on the island of Kasos. These stories are imbued with the sophistication and wit of a Greek expatriate, but at the same time they seek to delve deep into the motivating passions of the Aegean islands. Some of them reveal skeletons in the closet, and some, in the words of «The New Yorker Magazine», are «as savage as Homer’s». The work should be of interest to all those who left their homeland as well as those in search of new realms.
