"An exciting and colorful ride populated with a host of memorable characters, Karystiani's latest is both sweeping and efficient, except for a distracting tendency to tackle too much in one sentence." - Publishers Weekly
"Essential for fans of Greek literature, classic or modern, and recommended for most readers of literary fiction." - Library Journal
"A poignant, moving novel about aging." - Kirkus Reviews
"Karystiani movingly pays homage to the sea and those who live from it." - La Repubblica (Italy)
"This book, which envelops the reader in an atmosphere that is profoundly Hellenic, was born from sea stories born on the islands of Andros, Tinos, Cephalonia, and Corfu; Karystiani has re-elaborated them in a style that is limpid, lyrical, and richly suggestive."- Il Sole 24 Ore (Italy)
