Two Greeks

Author(s): John Charalambous

Adult Fiction

Oddly, I am only intermittently aware that our lives are dismal. I think all fathers must be part ogre, part child, part Zeus in the clouds - or all Greek fathers, even if I know no others.

Ten-year-old Andy senses that his peculiar little family is on the brink of collapse.

His father, Cypriot migrant Haralambos Stylianou, rules his quarter-acre kingdom kike a tyrant. His mother is waiting for the advent of no-fault divorce, when she will shuck off Harry Stylianou's crazy bullying and live in peace. But Andy has a melodramatic mind and suspects that it could just as easily end in murder.

And then one summer's day in 1974 a miraculous Greek voice pierces the surrounding Anglosphere - promising to put the kingdom right.
