Ernesto Carrer, a distant descendant of a Venetian family from Corfu, has worked on ships and is an accomplished chess-player. But when he travels to America in pursuit of wealth and social recognition, all he manages to do is to become entangled with three women are bent on destroying him.
In New York: Summer and Loneliness, Filippos Filippou, known for his detective fiction, engages with urban picaresque.
Correr is an irresolute character full of contradictions: a scholar and a man of action; a tender lover but a tough nut in affairs of the heart; he has many noble aspirations but is prone to depravity.
We see New York through the eyes of this outsider who experiences both sexual isolation and social ruination.
Successive reversals of action, characters who inhabit secret worlds, intense sexual fantasy and women who are prepared for anything, constitute the keynotes of this tale.
