Inside A Girl Like You
 Angela Dimitrakaki

386pp.
Hestia, 2009
ISBN13: 978-960-05-1429-2

Angela Dimitrakaki makes skilful use of letters, diaries, essays and journalism in a novel that highlights the politics of gender, sexuality and ethnicity. Her protagonist, Katina Mela, is a Greek-American scholar of contemporary Greek literature. She is a lesbian who is trying to work through her grief at the death of her mother, also a lesbian, and an acclaimed poet. She leaves the USA, spends a year in Athens, before moving on to Sri Lanka. In Greece she unburdens herself of her past, coming to grips again with her hatred of her irrelevant father, her love for her strange brother who burnt down the family’s pizzeria, and her adoration of the woman who brought her into the world. The adventures of the libido and the impasses of contemporary ideas meet in a world of porous borders where hybrid individuals and social groups of different sexual preferences and ethnicities mingle.
