Introduction by Bruce Clark.

This present translation brings one of the most beloved works of modern Greek literature to readers of english for the first time in its entirety. Land of Aeolia tells the story of the author’s childhood summers in anatolia before World War i, before the Greek genocide, the GrecoTurkish war, the author’s captivity by the Turks, and before the exchange of populations between Greece and Turkey in 1922 that led to the permanent loss of his homeland. in this story of his childhood, half fiction, half truth, ilias Venezis describes and affirms a world inwhich the lives of humans, be they smugglers,saints, brigands, farmers, camel drivers or children, are reflected in nature — in her mountains, rivers, trees, eagles, bears, eels, and lizards, and all her manifestations — and therefore share an innate affinity with her mysterious world.
