Recollections of a Lotus Eater
 Michalis Fakinos

349pp.
Kastaniotis, 2008
ISBN13: 978-960-03-4619-0

An architect undertakes the creation of a vast project but his endeavor never manages to acquire any identity. Called upon to give his all to his work, the hero suddenly sees it assuming massive proportions while he feels that he has ceased to participate in any kind of process at all. In Recollections of a Lotus Eater, Michalis Fakinos portrays the crisis experienced by an artist in an age where everything has fallen beneath the sway of impersonal technology and the market economy. His latest novel goes beyond the confines of realism; it is an eloquent allegory of corruption, decline and death. In a game that transcends logic and fantasy, the story offers a succession of reversals and surprises. It reflects deeply on the power of creation, the need for authenticity, and the ways in which mankind can resist nihilism and sterility in today’s world.
