Description - The Daughter by Pavlos Matesis

From one of Greece's most popular novelists comes this story of a 65-year-old actress, from her childhood in a provincial Greek town to her life as a pensioner. As a child she lives through the horrors of German occupation and the Greek civil war, seeing her mother sleep with Italian soldiers to feed her children and, later, being accused of collaborating with the enemy. Matesis' acclaimed novel vividly recaptures a little discussed period of Greece's recent past, while also telling the personal story of one woman's passion.
