Lilika Nakos (1899-1988) was one of the first women writers of modern Greek prose and for many years the only woman in Greek journalism. She was a member of the Generation of the Thirties, a group of writers who forged a modern novel in Greek. A study of Nakos' work is needed for an understanding of modern Greek literature. Moreover, it is needed to open the way for in-depth studies of women's contributions to modern Greek prose.
The first chapter introduces Nakos as Deborah Tannen knew her and sketches her life, including the circumstances of the writing of her major works and the themes that pervade them. The second chapter surveys her short stories. The remaining chapters discuss her major books in the order in which they were published, with a final chapter giving an overview of her work and its development over half a century.
