The Greeks Have a Word for It

Barry Unsworth (Author)

Overview | Inside the Book

When two men disembark from the same boat in Greece, their lives accidentally and frighteningly intersect.

Kennedy, an opportunist, orchestrates a scam that will have some intended and some thoroughly unintended consequences. For Mitsos, an unresolved family tragedy awakens again, along with his need to avenge his parents' deaths. With utterly convincing characterizations, Barry Unsworth brings us the underbelly of the forge of Western civilization.
