FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FROM FAMAGUSTA TO VIENNA
Set against the backdrop of pre-World War II, this intriguing novel by prize-winning author Niki Marangou is inspired by the story of her parents.
In the 1920s, a young man travels from his small town of Famagusta, Cyprus, to study medicine in Vienna. Dazzled by the opulent culture of the big city, George falls in love with an older Jewish woman and sees the rise of fascism take hold in Europe. He returns to Cyprus in 1940 and hires an assistant named Kate. George is charmed by her, but does not want to get attached, so he sends Kate to Alexandria, Egypt, where she experiences the “golden years” of the Greek community living there.
This insightful book has been translated into German, Rumanian, Bulgarian, and Arabic. A Turkish translation is also due. According to critic Alexis Zeras, “In Niki Marangou’s world, Eastern listlessness coexists with sensuality and the brilliant intellectuality of Western tradition.” All in all, it is a must-read story that will dazzle the senses.
FROM FAMAGUSTA TO VIENNA (ISBN: 978-1-60911-762-7) will be available on October 11, 2010 for $12.50 and can be ordered through the publisher’s website:
