A girl who lives in a small Greek seaside town in the early twentieth century resorts to falling into a long, deep sleep whenever she faces a threat, real or imagined, in Evgenia Fakinou’s latest novel, The Orleans Method.
As time goes by, it becomes apparent that the experience of being confined within four walls allows the heroine’s spirit to soar, rather than become dampened. Locked away for her own protection, she uses her imagination to overcome her fears.
Fakinou highlights the relations between nature and the city in the eyes of both children and adults.
Her insight into the workings of the mind and heart reveal the secret pleasures and unconfessed desires of childhood and adolescence.
One of this book’s charms is the way in which Fakinou expands its fictional compass with an extraordinary wealth of everyday detail, from colours and furniture to household utensils and pets.
