A streak of robust humor underlies the fragmentary images of city life in Drive In, a collection of short stories by Maria Markouli. The author brings a documentary mood and a snappy tempo to her depiction of Athenian moments and situations. Her style is pithy and deliberately unadorned as she introduces the characters and unfolds the plot in cinematic fashion. Driven by an intense desire for withdrawal and escape, her characters often find themselves propelled into the adventure of travel. From time to time, elements of the incongruous and the absurd irrupt into the narrative, subverting conventional expectations of reality and giving the stories a freshness of their own. As a journalist who specializes in contemporary music, the author operates with ease in the youthful world full of movement whose manifold aspects and personalities she portrays.
