Labyrinthine Ways


Labyrinthine Ways is a celebration of the mysteries, magic, myths, folklore, archaeology, distinctive cuisine, and the rugged landscape and courageous and indomitable people of Crete. The story unfolds in modern times with flash-backs to the days when first Constantinople, known as "The Queen of Cities," and "the most glorious city known to man," and then Venice, the unspeakably cruel and hated invader, ruled Crete. We learn of the fables and legends related to these times as they are recalled today with vivid detail by men in the kafenía of mountain villages. Into these labyrinthine paths wander tender and vulnerable souls on journeys of self-discovery. Among them is a young wayfarer haunted by the mysterious Crete that dominated and tormented the life of Nikos Kazantzakis, Crete's most famous novelist and author of Zorba the Greek. "Labyrinthine Ways is a novel that paints a portrait of the many magical and mysterious faces of Crete. The story enchants with fables of Crete's glorious past, and is written in a smooth, free-flowing style for the tourist who wants to experience The Great Island in all of its richness. Labyrinthine Ways presents Crete at its best; read this book before visiting our island. -Greek National Tourist Organization (GNTO)
