The Kindness of Strangers
 Petros Tatsopoulos

306pp.
Metaichmio, 2006
ISBN: 960-455-080-2

When a 19 year-old suddenly discovers that he is adopted, he endeavours to come to terms with the news. He embarks on a journey of exploration into the past of his natural parents, in the course of which he uncovers facts that he does not want to be associated with in any way.
Writer Petros Tatsopoulos recounts his own life as an adopted child, setting it in the wider context of an era when Western societies have made children very much the centre of attention.
The Kindness of Strangers blends various genres – fiction, essay, reportage, newspaper column, theatre and cinema – into an organic whole. The author tackles the topic of adoption without any trace of sentimentality or melodrama. Tatsopoulos’s latest book is marked by the strong currents of irony and self-irony that are the trademarks of all his work.
