The Purple Maestro
 Sofia Nikolaidou

240pp.
Kedros, 2006
ISBN: 960-04-3140-X





In an anatomy of family relations, The Purple Maestro recounts the story of a young woman who only comes to terms with her parents’ unusual life and attitudes after their death, when the negative feelings of her childhood and adolescence have given way to love and maturity.
Running in counterpoint to the angry, cynical parlance of the young that is spoken by the heroine are sudden outbursts of love and tenderness.
The narrative, peopled with well-thought out characters, continually moves backwards from the present to the past as it reconstructs the lives of the protagonists in full. Sofia Nikolaidou has structured her latest novel into brief narrative units, which complement its pithy style.
The atmosphere of the novel is redolent of the nightspots of Thessaloniki, with characters that live permanently in the half-light.
