Hagiography
 Nicos Panayotopoulos

330pp.
Polis, 2004
ISBN: 960-435-019-6

An early-twentieth-century trickster posing as a monk and miracle worker becomes a candidate for canonization some 70 years later. This epistolary narrative with no recipient is gradually transformed into a hagiography, in which the author plays masterfully with the literary genres from which his novel derives its shape and content. By the end he has cut both the historical novel and the traditional Lives of the Saints down to size.
The distant roar of the Second World War sporadically impinges on the fictional landscape, but with discreet tension. Enthralling black comedy keeps tripping up the progression of the plot.
Panayotopoulos uses highly inventive, mature, distilled language in a book in which everything depends on the mood of a narrator who constantly challenges us to discover what is behind his disguises.
