Asia, Asia
 Giorgos Veis

191pp.
Kedros, 1999
ISBN: 960-04-1629-X
ISBN13: 978-960-04-1629-9

Asia, Asia presents the magical atmosphere of the Far East, as seen by a Western diplomat who is eager to learn as much as he can about his postings. Giorgos Veis approaches others as if they were part of himself, in his attempt to understand the conditions of their existence from the inside.
His deliberately discontinuous narrative focuses on the small and the particular, which assume exceptional dimensions, thanks to his poetic bent. Magnifying images through the imagination, he often takes them beyond reality, to the point where they have a purely emotional impact. A welter of movement and colour stimulates the senses and aesthetics of the reader. Among the diffuse elements of culture and history, his narrative, with all the immediacy of a snapshot, portrays the world of women, from their clothes and adornments to their presence in public places and their reactions to personal contact.
