 Antonis Sourounis

224pp.
Kastaniotis, 2008
ISBN: 978-960-03-0069-7

In an unvarnished tale of Greek and other migrants in the industrial cities of West Germany during the 1960s and 70s, Antonis Sourounis takes on the establishment in all its manifestations. His cheeky, blasphemous narrator is equally cutting whether attacking power or indulging in merciless ridicule of downtrodden migrants and their misfortunes. As the characters turn aside from their miserable daily routines, they reveal an inner self that has been scarred by the myriad humiliations outsiders endure while they struggle to adapt to unfamiliar social conditions. The narrator is just as sarcastic at his own expense, proving he can make fun of his ordeals while proclaiming his certainty that he will survive at all costs. The plot moves along at a steady clip. The characters, drawn in brief but telling sketches, linger on in the reader’s mind. And the irony, dispensed in generous doses, never falls short of its mark.
