Review:

Katherine Kizilos brings a personal touch to the Greek isles, traveling from Athens to Chrysambela, the Peloponnesian village where her father lived until, at 17, he was put on a plane to Australia to escape the German occupation. She describes the first meeting with Grandmother Katerina, who spent the evening kissing her hand and stroking her hair, and the wide, operatic views overlooking the Corinthian Gulf. Kizilos's trip also takes in Syros, ThÝra, Patmos, Ikaria, and Lesbos. She ventures into the netherworld of the border, visiting Thrace despite her relatives' dire predictions, and provides an intimate picture of Greece that is far different from the usual Acropolis-dominated postcard depictions.
