Birthday Party by Panos Karnezis

Book Description

It is the summer of 1975. As dawn breaks on a small private island off the Mediterranean coast, Marco Timoleon, an aging tycoon, wakes up to see the final preparations for his troubled daughter's twenty-fifth birthday party. Having found out that she is pregnant by a man he doesn't approve of, he secretly intends to persuade her to terminate the pregnancy: the family doctor stands by to perform the operation on the spot. But as the day unfolds, his plan is put to the test and comes to an unexpected conclusion.

Fugitives by Panos Karnezis Fugitives, Paperback (April 2016)

In a Latin American rainforest, Father Thomas, a Catholic priest, comes across a wounded soldier and takes him to his church in an Indian village. The Indians are wary of this new arrival. Venustiano, the proud young head of the village, is determined to protect his people. But his immediate problem is the jaguar prowling around the village.

Convent by Panos Karnezis Convent, Paperback (January 2011)

The convent of Our Lady of Mercy stands alone in an uninhabited part of the Spanish sierra. Its inhabitants are devoted to God, to solitude and silence; six women cut off from the world they've chosen to leave behind. Everything changes on the day that Mother Superior Maria Ines discovers a suitcase at the entrance to the retreat.

Maze by Panos Karnezis Maze, Paperback (July 2007)

Anatolia, 1922. Pursued by a Turkish army after three years of Greek occupation, a retreating Greek brigade has lost its way. Commanded by a brigadier with a passion for Greek mythology and a secret addiction to morphine, the brigade's only chance of salvation is to reach the Mediterranean coast and sail home.

Little Infamies by Panos Karnezis Little Infamies, Paperback (May 2003)

These stories are all set in the same nameless Greek village, a world where magic invariably loses out to harsh reality, a world at once universal, funny and compelling. The villagers' lives intersect, as lives do in a small place, and they all know each other's secrets - all the little infamies.
