Wow, this was a pretty crazy book! I . . . think I liked it? Oh, those Greeks.

Composed of short chapters, little glimpses into the lives of the ragtag multilingual inhabitants of an unnamed Greek island, the majority of whom are trying to be writers or painters, the book covers the events following the arrival (although it seems he was already there, or at least everyone assumes that) of a new Messiah, sent down because God was bored. What follows is not what I expected. But it is very interesting. And a little yucky.

I will definitely read more of Karapanou's books. But I will take a break first.
