Description

The moment of reckoning has come for Captain Mitsos Avgustis. After 12 years at sea, it's time to go home to the island on which he was born: home to his wife Flora, his two daughters, his son, a granddaughter and Litsa, his lover from years ago. It will take all his courage and strength to face the squalls and storms on land after a lifetime at sea. Swell is a sweeping saga about love and hope set in modern-day Greece and is Karystiani's most moving and gripping novel yet.

Author Biography

Ioanna Karystiani was born on the island of Crete, Greece, in the town of Chania and now lives in Athens. Her literary debut came with the collection of short stories, I kyria Kataki (Ms. Kataki). She has since written three novels, all of which have been translated into several languages. She wrote the screenplay for The Brides, directed by Pandelis Vulgaris and produced by Martin Scorsese, and Estrella mi vida, directed by Costa Gavras. She received the Greek state prize for literature and the Athenian Academy prize for her first novel, and the Diavaso literature prize for her second.
