    Deep Blue Almost Black
    Selected Fiction
    With vivid language and powerful imagery, Thanassis Valtinos addresses the major dislocations of three generations of Greeks in the face of profound political, social, and cultural change. Disillusioned urbanites and simple farmers alike are affected by the coups and political pressures of contemporary Greece, while at the same time they are moved by the primitive Greece of visions, ghostly apparitions, and of saints' shrines in olive groves. Valtinos's astonishing gift for irony and poignant understatement make this novella and collection of short stories a powerful commentary on contemporary Greek affairs.
