it was amazing

Communist insurgents battled to topple the government of Greece. 1948. People beyond Greece scarcely took note of the struggle at the time and all of it nearly is forgotten today. May, "Eleni," never be forgot. This singular book is so beautiful and so terrifying it must be ranked among the finest writings of the 20th Century in America. Nicholas Gage's tribute to his mother - Eleni - his recounting of the fighting and suffering which attended civil war in Greece needs to have attention called to it. It is a triumph.

Mary Miklethun I have read this too, upon GLC's recommendation. It is a remarkable piece of work, and worth reading again.
