Beer with Grenadine
 Fondas Ladis

111pp.
Pyli, 2007
ISBN: 960-7041-14-3
ISBN13: 978-960-7041-14-2

The sixteen short but sharp stories of Beer with Grenadine play out in the dark underside of Athens. Fondas Ladis ably delineates character within the constraints of the short story. His characters are everyday people that we might see around us, but also unpredictable individuals that we would only meet in curious circumstances: an accidental witness to a crime, a young woman from Thailand who works as a stripper, a Brazilian woman married to a Greek tradesman who thrusts her into the arms of a middle-aged man. There is an element of crime fiction in these stories, where the contemporary social scene of the Greek capital, with all its rigidity and distortions, provokes the most unexpected reactions. A vivid atmosphere, cleverly orchestrated psychology, and well-timed plot revelations make this a book that can be read fast but that leaves a lasting impression.
