With the hypnotizing power of her story, the great Greek writer takes the reader into a strange microuniverse, into a “wonderland,” as Alice would say in the well-known fairy tale.

The chain of episodes told in “One Hundred Streets and One Night” begins with the invisible feeling that there are invisible beings, i.e. ghosts, around the central heroine of the book. Instead of being afraid, she decides to follow what no one can see but only feel, on a hike reminiscent of a journey through time:

From the Trojan War and the Homeric world to the 1821 revolution through Byzantium – all through experiences that people she meets along the way share with the book’s protagonist. Each of them is also a legend – but all the legends together make up the uniqueness of one of the greatest cultural achievements of the Greeks – our wonderful mythology.
