For the novel “Griza Politeia” The Grey City
“The Grey City is the mist-enveloped Paris of the troubled 60s, a decade which has been called “sinful”, shaken by the then novel outbreak of universal violence and anarchistic romanticism.
The youth of that decade, having suffered the traumas of the World War, were finding their dreams thwarted, while the memories of blood and ruins and human humiliation were still fresh.
The heroine, a delicate girl of tender age, her personality marked by the ruins of the past and the anarchism of the present, finds herself in the heart of Paris, where she will live her own adventure, her own loneliness, the fever of absolute love and, above all, her own revolution.
The Grey City is not only the rainy city of Paris with the fascination of that decade, but the center of the universal stage, where the characters of the novel live their own personal drama, amidst the barracks of the Latin Quartier, the love of the impossible, and the white Greek islands of memory.”
