Publisher Description

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.
