James P. Hadley: Prisoner of Love
cover prisoner en2Prisoner of Love is a novel including the romance of  mass market love stories and the suspense of crime fiction paperback novels. But at the same time: love for books and the adventure of every author going through a writer’s block.
It combines two stories; the romantic adventure of the innocent Marcella and the thriller of a desperate Greek fortune-hunter who is forced to write a book, under the instructions of his lover, the famous writer Magdalena Love.
The story of Marcella begins as a romantic pursuit of the perfect mate then becomes a chic lit and ends up becoming an adventure with international gangs of illicit dealers in antiquities. Also, it passes through historical writing while you will also find a slight touch of magic.
The story of the Greek fortune hunter acquires an emotional tone as well when, he initially falls in love with his female character, Marcella, and later on, with a woman that looks very much like her. However, he ends up being a prisoner of the Dionysiac and ruthless Magdalena Love as well as Freddo, her brutal bodyguard.
The story is not lacking in certain features of the social crisis Greece has been going through, as its main part takes place one summer on various Greek islands.

Gregory Papadoyiannis: 52 EYELANDS – A sentimental Journey Through the Greek Islands
52eyelandsThis is a “sentimental” guide for travellers, through 52 of the Greek islands. This book has simply been written out of an outrageous love for the islands, to describe what it feels like to actually “live the island” – even for a week – and to find out what it’s like, from how it looks to how it can be characterized in terms of its deeper essence. I liken this process to getting to know a friend, or perhaps even falling in love.
«Sustained throughout 52 eyelands is the voice of a travelling companion who is always careful not to tell you too much, always conscious that travel is about making choices and that since each traveller is different, each has discoveries of their own awaiting them on the islands he knows and loves so well. At last: a no-spoilers guidebook. This could be a thing»
Lane Ashfeldt (author of ‘’Saltwater’)
