A true story set on Greece's real 'Mamma Mia' island of Skopelos.
Comic and tragic by turns, Aegean Dream is a story of love, resilience, and the power of friendship. A compelling window on the daily life of a small Greek island and the spirit of its people, this book also provides striking insights into the broken institutions that would soon shake the entire global economy.
- What’s it really like to live on a tiny Greek island?
- Why is the Greek economy so messed up?
- What IS ‘The Secret’?
...and what do mysterious skulls, Russian prostitutes, President Bush the elder, and Pierce Brosnan have to do with it all?
In November 2006, Linda and Dario gamble everything on their dream--a new life on the tiny Greek island of Skópelos. They've studied Greek, done their research, and have a simple goal: to set up a small natural cosmetics business and live happily ever after. But the Greek Gods have other ideas, and before long the couple find themselves snarled in a web of lies and incompetence, their dream slipping hopelessly out of reach.In Greece, connections are everything. But will the efforts of their friends--the proud and complicated Dr. Yiánnis; Tákis, the island's chess-playing, motorcycle-riding Adonis; and Ilíana, the mayor's gentle daughter--be enough to help them overcome their difficulties before their slim finances run out and they're forced to abandon their dream?
Dario Ciriello's 'Aegean Dream'. All story. All true.
