    A Novel

    A novel of love, friendship, and survival set in the red light district of Athens in the 1980s.

    "Reading this novel was a conversion experience. I was immediately with the narrator, and I didn't care where we were going. Every sentence lit up with silver rain and smoke and the beauty of arriving in a foreign city and the defiance of needing almost nothing-and how strangely impossible it is when you lose that. Running is like taking a trip into a story you never knew you needed. You should take it, at once." - Alexander Chee, author of The Queen of the Night
