Here's what you say about us...

"The Book of Katerina is a gleefully sardonic novel
about illness and family, and how we can never quite
cure ourselves of either." - GLEN JAMES BROWN

Award-winning and prolific author of novels, plays,
novellas, short story collections and translations.

A popular stage adaptation of the novel, directed by
Yorgos Nanouris, won critical acclaim and was presented
to UK audiences in 2016.

'My name is Katerina, and I died by a route dark and lonely,
for there was too much in me I could bear no longer.'

In this acclaimed Greek novel, Auguste Corteau imagines
his own mother's inner life, observing with wit and earthy
humour the saga of her extended family's ups and downs in
the city of Thessaloniki over three generations.
From the poverty of the early years through to affluence and
aspirations of grandeur, Katerina drags her husband and son
into the chaos of her life: sicknesses are hidden, siblings fight
for love and attention while feckless husbands and unwanted
children are riven through the family story.
