BOUNDLESS GARDEN, THE: SELECTED SHORT STORIES VOL. 1
Alexandros Papadiamandis (1851-1911) is arguably the best known and most important writer of prose fiction in Greece. He now occupies a legendary status as a writer, especially among Greek Orthodox. He lived during a period of post-Enlightenment turmoil and his reflections on and observations of some of the most complex facets of Greek life define the modern Greek experience in a way unattained by any of his contemporaries. His loving attachment to the old traditional ways have marked him out for some as conservative, even reactionary, but it was an attachment tempered with an innate and deep understanding of how the past breathes life into the present, an understanding which is as relevant in our times as it was in his.
