Mr Episkopakis
 Andreas Mitsou

143pp.
Kastaniotis, 2007

Unremitting sexual rivalry drives the heroes to either madness or death in Mr Episkopakis. Two lovers don’t know what to do about their illicit relationship, an enraged husband seizes a pistol and prepares to take the law into his own hands, and a professional blackmailer meets an ugly end.
Andreas Mitsou’s latest novel strikes a balance between tragedy and black comedy. While the narrative is ready to mourn the unjust loss of the people caught up in its mesh, it also holds them up to the most humiliating ridicule for their rashness and irresponsibility. The writer takes his story from the everyday life of his heroes to a paradoxical or metaphysical level, where the realistic setting collides with the imaginary transcendence of reality. An orchestrated ambivalence keeps moving the reader from one mood or situation to the next, while the principal narrator, artfully deploying endless subterfuges and digressions, puts off any revelation of the outcome until the very last moment.
