The Milk of the Snake
 Yannis Xanthoulis

453pp.
Ellinika Grammata, 2007

The manager of a small publishing company is suddenly forced to confront his past when a peculiar manuscript arrives on his desk out of the blue. Set in Athens, The Milk of the Snake is a family chronicle that starts in the 1960s and extends up to the present day. In his latest novel, popular author Giannis Xanthoulis explores both the need to retain and defend memory and what happens when identity is obliterated and lost. The realistic setting of the novel is richly detailed, and the skilful portrayal of the characters reveals their inner doubts and contradictions. The author brings historical events and contemporary reality together in a work that succeeds in assimilating a mass of disparate material into a taut narrative that moves along at a lively pace.
