Data from the decade of the sixties : a novel by Thanasēs Valtinos( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The many voices in this impressive chronicle coalesce in a series of fictional documents, ranging from personal correspondence between friends and family members to news reports and advertisements. The reader is privy to letters written by lovelorn youths begging for guidance from a radio advice guru and to emigration applications of uneducated and underprivileged Greeks. As governments fall, sexologists, fortune-tellers, garage owners, and lonely matrons advertise their specialties and needs in want ads, while the young and resigned cling to the cheap novels, movies, and gossip columns that are the foundation of their barren existence."
Orthokostá : a novel by Thanasēs Valtinos( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1994 to a storm of controversy, Thanassis Valtinos's probing novel Orthokostá contested standard interpretations of the Greek Civil War. Through the documentary-style testimonies of multiple narrators, among them the previously unheard voices of right-wing collaborationists, Valtinos provides a powerful, nuanced interpretation of events during the later years of the Nazi Occupation and the early stages of the nation's Civil War. His fictionalized chronicle gives participants, victims, and innocent bystanders equal opportunity to bear witness to such events as the burning of Valtinos's home village, the detention and execution of combatants and civilians in the monastery of Orthokostá, and the revenge killings that ensued. As a transforming work of literature, this book redefined established methods of fiction; as a novel based on actual history, it changed the way Greeks understand their own past."--Dust jacket
