by Katerina Chryssanthopoulou

A daring dissection of erotic relations in 21st-century Europe.

 

Kostis Tzermias'  second novel, Who was the Assassin of Vizyenos, was shortlisted for the State Literary Prize in 2002. His latest novel, The Europeans: The Province of Feelings, is a bold anatomy of erotic relations in the context of a single (?) Europe of the twenty-first century.

The Europeans
is also a study of erotic and social hatred. The story’s central hero, the philhellene Belgian writer Pierre Mortel, loathes his former lover and seeks revenge because “we’re tossed into this world to hate one another, to torment ourselves and others”. But he has second thoughts: “Is it possible for me to envisage if not some form of happiness, something that at least isn’t anguish?”

The Europeans
is a novel about the dead ends that contemporary erotic and social relations face in modern metropolises.
