An Entertainment Weekly “Must Read,” this masterful debut tells one family’s tumultuous story of love and resistance during the Greek military junta of the 1960s.

Named “a must read” by Entertainment Weekly, this masterful debut takes us to the poignant and powerful heart of a family caught up in Greece’s brutal 1967 military coup d’état. As these characters struggle with their passions, both personal and political, and their stories of love and resistance play out against the backdrop of this turbulent period, their lives begin to unfold in surprising ways. A widowed doctor and her daughters, their poet uncle and his wife, must each make their own peace with when to stay silent in the face of atrocity, and when to act.

Set in Paris and Athens, The Green Shore is an ambitious, lyrical tour de force that captures the human cost of a terrifying historical moment. In flawless, gorgeous prose, award-winning novelist Natalie Bakopoulos draws us into the lives of unforgettable people who vividly illuminate not only this place and this time but, fundamentally, what it means to be human.

About the Author:

Natalie Bakopoulos holds an MFA in fiction from the University of Michigan, where she now teaches. Her work has appeared in Tin House, Ninth Letter, Granta.com, Salon.com, The New York Times, and The New York Times Book Review, and has received an O. Henry Award, a Hopwood Award, and the Platsis Prize for Work in the Greek Legacy. She is a contributing editor for the online journal Fiction Writers Review. The Green Shore is her first novel.

Review:

“Bakapoulos has an enormous heart, and she is a writer to watch.” (The Chicago Tribune)

“An astute accounting of the way political climates shift inner lives.” (Time Out Chicago)

“Natalie Bakopoulos, in her sharp debut novel . . . [explores] the ways oppression clarifies and complicates desire, either binding our emotional and political selves or snapping them in two.” (Mark Athitakis The Cleveland Plain Dealer)

The Green Shore is an extremely compelling, deeply personal tale...this searing literary accomplishment renders clear a monumental episode in our world history through the very intimate portrait of one family.” (Shepherd Express)

“Warm, engaging characters and a richly authentic Greek setting make for an engaging read with commercial appeal. . . . Bakopoulos’s juxtaposition of a historic conflict with the joys and trials of motherhood, the heedlessness of youth, and the durability of family ties is poignant and effective.” (Publishers Weekly (boxed review))

“Bakopoulos takes an event from halfway around the world and places the reader in the midst of the love, the angst, and the turmoil. Lovers of Greek culture and history--and students of its current political upheaval--will find much to discuss in this compelling novel.” (The Library Journal)

“A tour de force” (The Detroit News)

“The writing is lush, tinged with sexual longing and fear and with dreams that are interrupted.” (The Lansing City Pulse)

“Deeply imbued with the passion and honor synonymous with Greek culture, abundant with sensuous imagery and stimulating discourse, Bakopoulos’ debut novel is a sumptuous and provocative portrait of the nexus of the personal with the political.” (Booklist)

“Bakopoulos weaves a most intriguing tale, a braid of the personal and political, with deftly complicated characters that we come to care for, and hope for, deeply.” (The Oregonian)
