Something Will Happen, You'll See A Tale of Polygamy

by Christos Ikonomou, translated from Greek by Karen Emmerich
£12.99   paperback  Archipelago Books (2016)

Something Will Happen, You Something Will Happen, Youíll See is a heart-wrenching elegy on the impoverished working-class Greeks populating the neighborhoods around Piraeus, the large port southwest of Athens.

Ikonomouís luminous and poignant short stories center around laid-off steelworkers, warehousemen, families, pensioners, and young couples faced with sudden loss and turmoil. Between docks, in tenement buildings, and on city streets Ikonomouís men and women sustain their traumas on flickers of hope in the darkness and on their deep faith in humanity.

An illuminating examination of the human condition, Ikonomouís award-winning book has become the literary emblem of the Greek crisis; stories so real, humane, and haunting that they will stay with the reader long after the final page.
