Little Infamies

by Panos Karnezis // Picador
In a nameless Greek village, the lives of its citizens--the priest, the whore, the doctor, the seamstress, the mayor--and even its animals--a centaur, a parrot that recites Homer, a horse called History--are entwined. As their lives intersect, their hidden crimes, their little infamies, are revealed, in a place full of passion, cruelty, and deep reserves of black humor.
Juxtaposing the images of a Greek villager and a horse to create a modern Mythological Centaur.
