Second Wife
 Eliana Hourmouziadou

376pp.
Kedros, 20042004
ISBN: 960-04-3127-2

Set in 2064 in a Balkan metropolis where industry can manufacture perfect bodies, Second Wife explores the moral dilemmas facing those who will not surrender their conscience without a fight. The futurist novel meets detective and mystery fiction in a powerful synthesis.
Eliana Hourmouziadou combines accessible language with an elaborate narrative that illuminates the innermost world of its protagonists. Her female characters play a leading part, embodying most of the contradictions in a future world divided between those who embrace the frighteningly infinite possibilities of science and those who cherish the integrity of their albeit imperfect bodies.
Second Wife takes on the full agenda of our times – from globalization and bioethics to cloning and elective plastic surgery – without disturbing the balance of the story.
An inventive take on the futurist novel, it depicts complex clashes among family, friends and lovers in a dark though not entirely nightmarish era and society.
