Told through the eyes of an observant and resilient boy, the book begins with the German seizure of Athens in 1941. Grim events of war, displacement, and exile never extinguish the curiosity – even the joys – of his childhood. Compelling writing mixes reality and fantasy to concoct a memorable tribute to the human spirit, from Asia Minor to Greece to Canada. —Douglas Babington, Bivouac Prayers
