In February 2011, a young man loses his wife in a car accident. One year later, he decides to write a book about losing her, along with his job, his future, his identity. A book about losing control of his life, and about the sudden, profound losses of an entire nation. Sure, he has his reasons for writing, but he has secrets to share, too—secrets that can only be revealed in a month like this, in cathartic February. February broke new ground in ‘public’ writing: every day for a month, the author would post the chapter he was working on online at www.februarios.com for visitors to read and comment on. This, coupled with the fact that the action takes place in a Greece that’s real, injected large doses of truth into the text: a sudden downpour, clashes in downtown Athens, dozens of buildings burnt to the ground in the city, Parliament passing the Second Memorandum enforcing the austerity measures demanded by the Troika.

One of the most “live” and interactive literary experiments ever attempted. During its writing, 15,000 readers lived it online over 100,000 times.
