Love in a Time of Irony
 Angela Kastrinaki

377pp.
Ellinika Grammata, 2008
ISBN13: 978-960-19-0300-2

A young woman whose marriage has given her no cause for complaint embarks on an affair. Her husband promptly follows suit, starting a relationship with a much younger woman. Suddenly passion assumes command and the outcome of the ensuing furore almost proves fatal. Disaster is averted, however, when reason prevails. Love in a Time of Irony by Angela Kastrinaki shows how irony has come to hold sway in the world of today. Engaging as it does with the age-old concerns of personal relationships, infidelity and suicide, the novel converses with the work of Goethe and Bergman. It explores self-control and the difficulty of maintaining that control indefinitely. Images of everyday life, presented calmly and without effusion, are the keynote of this novel that defuses the potential drama of its theme by placing humour in the foreground.
