Cavafy's Stone and Other Village Tales

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


In "Cavafy's Stone and Other Village Tales," among those we meet are an old village priest who has his life upended by the vision of a lovely young tourist bathing naked in a mountain stream; a homosexual schoolteacher trapped in the rigid mores of the village finds comfort in a small stone that once belonged to the Alexandrian poet Cavafy; a girl who marries the handsomest man in the village only to discover he is a brutal wife-beater; two sisters who compete for the love of the same man with tragic consequences; a father tormented by aberrant feelings toward his young daughter; a young woman who discovers her grandmother’s dark secret from the time of the German occupation in World War II; a farmer whose single act of infidelity causes him a lifetime of anguish; and an immigrant who finds wealth in the U.S. and returns to the village in a sporty Cadillac that cannot fit in its narrow village streets.
