About this title


Set in 1967, the Colonels have seized power in Greece and are brutally determined to hold on to it. Injustice and violence stalk the land. Vangelis, an idealist young lawyer, and his wife Chryssa are drawn slowly into the resistance movement.

From Library Journal:

``Perhaps other countries are either democracies or dictatorships, but here the two things fight all the time.'' Thus one of the protagonists of this fine novel characterizes the dilemma that divides her family and lays waste to her country, Greece. Coup portrays the devastating effect of repression on the families of two sisters in the wake of the Colonels' Coup of 1967. Chryssa's husband, Vangelis, seeks to bring the junta into the courts, were he hopes to use its own laws to limit its excesses. At first the government plays with him; then it sends him to prison. Trying to find him, Chryssa is confronted by the massive indifference of the regime. Kiki's husband, Leonidas, climbs to influence by pandering to the officers, but ends up backing the wrong faction. His son turns away from him in disgust. One loses his freedom, the other his son; but both are reduced to impotence by this terrible regime. A compelling story, told with elegance and compassion.
