The Cherubim in the Moquette
 Eleni Giannakaki

288pp.
Hestia, 2006
ISBN: 960-05-1252-3

The Cherubim in the Moquette by Eleni Giannakaki tells the story of a woman of 40 who studied architecture but has stayed at home for many years to bring up her children. It depicts the suffocating life of an everyday routine that is weighed down with the burdens of family life. A desperate attempt to escape from the dead end in which she finds herself leads the heroine into an even more difficult and problematic situation.
The narrative is tightly constructed and there is a constant undercurrent of suspense to the story as the strand of a whole life is unwound in the course of single day. It is a tightly woven, well thought out tale, where the roles are skilfully apportioned.
Each new chapter supplies intriguing new details about the main theme, which was introduced at the very beginning. The intense tempo builds up to successive climaxes, gripping the reader’s attention.
