Room Everywhere
 Yiannis Efstathiadis (Apicius)

141pp.

ISBN: 960-8309-47-6

The world of gastronomy is viewed from a heretical standpoint, as a locus where a bitter and far from promising reality is shaped.
Memory is stirred in Proustian fashion when a moment of taste paves the way for the entry into the infinity of time past.
Seen in a low or delicately angled light, human dramas acquire a rare intensity.
In Room Everywhere Yiannis Efstathiadis plays a game with multiple layers of European literature, world cinema and classical music.
The author is a stylist who knows how to perform miracles with small surfaces and barely visible detail. He tackles the harsher aspects of everyday life without any sentimental gloss or facile whimpering to achieve the productive contraction of opposites – joy and sadness, discontent and euphoria, optimism and pessimism on a common, undivided course
