In the late 1940s, following the late defeat of the Communists in the Greek civil war, a doctor in the Democratic Army arrives in Tashkent. The family left behind is persecuted on his account. The former partisans destroy each other in Tashkent. Stalinists see traitors everywhere, de-Stalinization ushers in new suspicions and persecution, while the supporters of party orthodoxy prove to be ruthless opportunists. Disillusioned, in 1967 the doctor takes his wife and children by train via Moscow and Skopje to the border of junta-ruled Greece. His double journey from civil war to the promise of communism and from shattered communism to Greece under the dictatorship, and his dual distancing from Greece and his comrades, reflect the dramas that lay behind the Cold War. Cotton Country combines historical, political and epistolary narrative with diary, dreams and literary and historical references, in a novel that constantly draws attention to the process of composition.
