"The Book of Katerina is a gleefully sardonic novel about illness and family, and how we can never quite cure ourselves of either." - GLEN JAMES BROWN Award-winning and prolific author of novels, plays, novellas, short story collections and translations. A popular stage adaptation of the novel, directed by Yorgos Nanouris, won critical acclaim and was presented to UK audiences in 2016. 'My name is Katerina, and I died by a route dark and lonely, for there was too much in me I could bear no longer.' In this acclaimed Greek novel, Auguste Corteau imagines his own mother's inner life, observing with wit and earthy humour the saga of her extended family's ups and downs in the city of Thessaloniki over three generations. From the poverty of the early years through to affluence and aspirations of grandeur, Katerina drags her husband and son into the chaos of her life: sicknesses are hidden, siblings fight for love and attention while feckless husbands and unwanted children are riven through the family story.
