“The Lame Angel”, a Greek Novel now in the US
Recital Publishing from Woodstock, NY brings an acclaimed Greek novel to English-speaking readers. The Lame Angel by Alexis Panselinos was originally published in Greek by Kedros in 2002. Its only English translation, by Athens-based author/editor Caroline Harbouri, is now available from booksellers everywhere.
The Lame Angel is set in Athens during the Nazi occupation and tells the story of an injured private eye from New York facing difficulties at every turn, but aided by a mysterious gift. It tinges the bleak with the whimsical, a unique mix of gritty history and magical realism.
“Truly heartrending pictures of occupied Athens and yet imbued with a discreet, crisp sense of humor,” writes Vangelis Hadjivasiliou of Eleftherotypia newspaper.
Alexis Panselinos read Law at the University of Athens and worked as a practicing lawyer. His first book, a collection of stories, appeared in 1982 to great acclaim.
