I started out as a book collector and soon progressed to owning a book store with over 80,000 books and more than 10,000 pieces of ephemera, postcards, and other items. I exhibited my stock for years at book and paper shows around the eastern United States. As the book and paper business has changed over the years, I have changed the way I do business to evolve with the times. I now offer my items for sale on the web only, through my various listing services and web sites. Being a a collector, as well as a dealer, I understand the importance of condition, as well as rarity of an item, and the desire to own scarce and one of a kind items.

From the publisher

Born in 1933 in Kavalla in Northern Greece, VASSILIS VASSILIKOS grew up mostly in Salonika. After the military coup in 1967, he spent seven years in exile, returning to Greece in 1974. Author of some 120 books, translated into more than twenty foreign languages, Vassilikos is Greece's formost living novelist. His novel, Z, was adapted for film by Costa Gavras, winning the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 1969.

From the rear cover

In this new collection of loosely related stories, Greece's most acclaimed living novelist gives us a vivid and complex portrait of contemporary Europe and contemporary Europeans. Here are seven tales that tell, sometimes whimsically and other times bitterly, of the old world facing new dilemmas. In the title story, five friends start a newspaper consisting of nothing more than people's dreams and end up determining the political reality of their country. In "history", a jaded group of guests cavort on an industrialist's yacht, while the captain teaches his grandson the history of modern Greece. In "stories of taxi drivers", one of the newspapermen recounts the dreams of taxi drivers. "Dona Rosita and Don Pacifico" and "three miraculous moments lived by Dona Rosita" comprise a magical realist love story. "The white bear" describes the appearance of a bear in downtown Athens. And in "the transplant", the notebooks of a troubled Greek writer in Rome finish telling of the life and death of Dona Rosita, whose posthumous heart transplant saved the life of her friend.
