Eurydice Street, A Place in Athens

Eurydice Street, A Place in Athens

by Sofka Zinovieff

  • TRAVEL NARRATIVE
  • 2005
  • PAPER
  • 276 PAGES

Zinovieff, a transplanted Englishwoman, trained as an anthropologist and married to a Greek Diplomat, is an appreciative, dead-on guide to Athens, its character, aspirations and reality. She's not interested in the Greece of tourist offices (and Eurydice Street is an out of the way place in the suburbs by the sea) but in the reality of everyday life. Read it as a uncommonly good memoir and insightful introduction to the city.  (GRE253, $14.95)
