THE MAZE by Panos Karnezis
Released: March 1, 2004

"A splendidly realized account of fate and circumstance, richly narrated with a good ear for the music of history and character alike."
First-novelist Karnezis (stories: Little Infamies, Feb. 2003) works out a nice improvisation on the classic Homeric themes of exile and cunning—here, as played out in the aftermath of the disastrous 1922 Anatolian war. Read full book review >
