The Gift
 Vassilis Karapostolis

334pp.
Patakis, 2008
ISBN13: 978-960-16-2671-0

A painter of fifty who has made a brilliant career in Greece and Europe meets a young student of architecture. Together they become involved in an adventure full of surprises. The Gift raises the hot topic of everyday coexistence and communication in a dysfunctional and inhospitable social environment. The couple represents the positive and negative poles of a society that is mired in corruption and unable to find an outlet for its hidden tensions. A mature woman, she strives not to betray her sensitivities, while the rebellious but vulnerable young man is caught up in his own inner chaos. Vassilis Karapostolis shows how individuals can disappear into the surrounding social fabric. Flashbacks into the pasts of the two protagonists come to the surface at dramatic moments in the narrative. Building on solid psychological and social foundations, the novel casts a critical but dispassionate eye on Greece over the past twenty years.
