Things Can Only Get Feta: Two Journalists and Their Crazy Dog Living Through the Greek Crisis


Description

NEW EDITION: Amazon bestseller in Greek Travel categories and Essays and Travelogues. After an Arctic winter, a British recession, and a downturn in the newspaper industry, two journalists and their dog embark on an adventure in the wild and beautiful southern Peloponnese. A perfect plan, except for one thing - Greece is deep in economic crisis. And if fiscal failure can't overturn the couple's escapade in rural Greece, perhaps macabre local customs, a scorpion invasion, zero dog-tolerance, and eccentric expats will. This is a humorous and insightful journey through one of the last unspoilt regions of Greece. It is full of encounters with warm-hearted Greeks who show that this troubled country still has heroes, if not euros. In a hillside village in the Mani, the locals share their lives, their laughter and their stories and help chart the couple's own passage back to happiness. Reviews "An honest view of 'away-from-it-all' Greece today, as seen through the refreshingly unblinkered eyes of a very gifted author. An engaging, humour-spiced book that entertains and informs. Highly recommended." Peter Kerr, bestselling author of Snowball Oranges. "Honestly, you won't be able to put this book down." Maria Karamitsos, The Greek Star newspaper, Chicago. "Marjory tells a good story with a journalist's eye for mood and detail... With luck she will write a second volume as entertaining, good-hearted and moving as this." Alex Martin, Anglo-Hellenic Review, London. "A book to relax into, a wonderful record of Greece's uniqueness, written with wonderment, admiration and wit, all in equal measure." Anne Zouroudi, award-winning author of the Greek Detective series of novels. "Marjory McGinn's laconic wit and delightful style brings the herb infused landscape of the Mani to life with a joyous ease." Harry Bucknall, author of Like a Tramp, Like a Pilgrim. "The best book of its kind I've ever read. It has it all: humour, interesting facts and a good measure of sentiment... Marjory is a truly talented author." Effrosyni Moschoudi, author of Amazon bestseller, The Necklace of the Goddess Athena.

"There's no way not to suffer. But you try all kinds of ways to keep from drowning in it."
