A Lot of Butter on the Dog’s Hide
 Giorgos Skabardonis

416pp.
Kedros, 2006
ISBN: 960-04-3143-4

Matters become incredibly complicated when the head of the Greek secret service undertakes the task of protecting General De Gaulle during his official visit to Thessaloniki on 19 May 1963.
The action takes place three days before the murder of parliamentary deputy Grigoris Lambrakis, which inspired the best-selling novel Z by Vassilis Vassilikos and the popular film of the same name by Costas Gavras.
A society immersed in violence and illegality is struggling to emerge from the aftermath of World War II and the final throes of the civil war. Giorgos Skabardonis’s latest novel is set in a world that is dominated by foreign agents, local agents of the parastate, virulent anticommunism and unstable government. This fast-moving story with its vivid characters and continious plot reversals takes a sideways look at the turbulent political climate of an entire era, where past history exercises tremendous pressure on individual consciences.
