A Man by Oriana fallaci


Product description

Saved from execution through the intervention of world leaders, Allesandro Panagoulis, an implacable Greek freedom fighter, endures years of imprisionment and torture before regaining his freedom and resuming his war against corrupt …

The book is a pseudo-biography about Alexandros Panagoulis written in the form of a novel. Fallaci had an intense romantic relationship with Panagoulis. 

She uses the novel to put forth her view that Panagoulis was assassinated by a vast conspiracy, a view widely shared by many Greeks.

The work has had mixed reviews. Some readers find the harsh polemic repetitive and disturbing. Fallaci is said to have been angry at Ms. magazine for not reviewing the work and this enhanced her reputation as an anti-feminist.

Quotes

“Don’t help me then, hand me over to the police, what’s the use anyway–”

“Of suffering, fighting? It allows us to live, my boy. A man who gives in doesn’t live, he survives.”

The Nifi by Linda Fagioli-Katsiotas



Description

The Nifi opens in 1983 in the remote Greek village of Margariti where the narrator, a young American woman who speaks no Greek, finds herself. 

A month before, back in a New York suburb, she had impulsively married a Greek immigrant from a local restaurant and had agreed to accompany him back to his village for an undefined period of time.

The village is in the poorest area of Greece and the narrator must acclimate to a countryside lifestyle, no running water and paralyzing culture shock.

Her new mother-in-law, Chevi, welcomes her and through her son, is able to convey the heartache and betrayals of her life, slowly emerging as a heroine in a heart-wrenching tale.

This story is rich in the culture and traditions of one small valley and the events that defined generations on both sides of the Atlantic. It will leave you with an unquenchable yearning for more!

Three years ago Riley Young fled from Lawton, Alabama. After accusing the oldest Lawton son, Rhett, of rape the town turned against her and she had no option but to leave. Now, she’s back but she’s not at Lawton High finishing up her senior year. She’s at home raising the two year old little girl that no one believed was Rhett Lawton’s.

When Brady Higgens finds Riley and her daughter Bryony stranded on the side of the road in a rain storm he pulls over and gives them ride. Not because he cares about Riley but because of the kid.
