The effectively compiled experiences of a Greek boy who was forced to leave Greece in 1948 during the civil war and found a new home in Brno, Czechoslovakia, where he was brought up by his Greek grandparents. As a mature man the hero of this story revisits the places of his childhood in order to take his grandparents' ashes back to their beloved Greece. His encounters with places he had known so intimately that somehow seem faraway and distant now, evoke brightly etched memories of his childhood, dominated by a wise and beautiful grandmother and a naively patriotic grandfather - and also his school, friends and first loves.Written by
