Du malheur d'être Grec by Nikos Dēmou( Book )

27 editions published between 1975 and 2016 in Greek, Modern and French and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Au fond, le Grec ignore la réalité. Il vit deux fois au-dessus de ses moyens financiers. Il promet trois fois plus que ce qu'il peut accomplir. Il affirme connaître quatre fois plus de choses que ce qu'il sait réellement. Il ressent (et compatit) cinq fois plus que ce qu'il est capable de ressentir.' Livre mythique qui circula même un temps sous le manteau, best-seller en Grèce au point que son titre est désormais une expression courante, 'Du malheur d'être Grec' aborde avec justesse, en 193 aphorismes satiriques et décalés, les principales facettes de l'identité et de la société grecques (poids du passé, relations avec 'l'Europe', politique, économie, culture, religion, environnement, sexualité, etc.), et se révèle au final un utile et passionnant petit guide amoureux de la Grèce"--Publisher's description, back cover

Über das Unglück, ein Grieche zu sein by Nikos Dēmou( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Wenn ein Grieche von Europa spricht, schliesst er Griechenland automatisch aus. Wenn ein Ausländer von Europa spricht, ist es undenkbar für uns, dass er Griechenland nicht mit einschliesst.' 'Das Parkinsonsche Gesetz auf Griechisch: Zwei Griechen schaffen in zwei Stunden (wegen Streitigkeiten), was ein Grieche in einer Stunde schafft.' Das behaupten nicht die Kontrolleure der EU, sondern einer der bekanntesten griechischen Intellektuellen, Nikos Dimou. Sein Klassiker 'Über das Unglück, ein Grieche zu sein', den jeder Grieche kennt, hat gerade wieder die Bestsellerlisten gestürmt - und liegt nun erstmals auf Deutsch vor. Zeitlose Einsichten für alle, die Griechenland lieben und doch an ihm verzagen: 'Ein Grieche tut alles, was er kann, um die Kluft zwischen Wunsch und Wirklichkeit zu vergrössern.' 'Mit Methode und System, die unserem täglichen Leben und unserer Arbeit fehlen, konzentrieren wir uns auf unsere geheime Mission: das wunderbare Land, das uns das Schicksal zugedacht hat, so effektiv wie möglich zu zerstören.' Der Philosoph Nikos Dimou, geb. 1935 in Athen, studierte in Athen und München und ist Autor von über 60 Büchern. Bekannt wurde der streitbare Intellektuelle durch seine Fernsehtalkshows, Radiosendungen und vielbesuchten Blogs. Sein berühmter Aphorismenband 'Über das Unglück, ein Grieche zu sein' erschien zuerst 1975
