A woman who leaves a wild party on Christmas Eve suddenly finds herself alone, in the midst of a city she does not recognize. Beneath its customary surface is another, utterly different Athens. It is a vast, opaque city, where shadowy figures occasionally emerge from the darkness. A colourful cast of prostitutes, thieves and politicians guides the protagonist round the unfamiliar urban landscape, revealing the most paradoxical truths. Ersi Sotiropoulos has always had her own slant on reality; in her latest novel she takes it to the limit. Her heroes conduct a riotous celebration from their everyday lives on the sidelines of society. With Eva, the author brings together elements from both a road story and a quest for self-knowledge. While the heroine may glorify her loneliness, she is sarcastic about others and herself, questioning and challenging whatever and whoever she encounters.
