This book, like the TV series of the same name on which it is based, is aimed at a general audience tuned in to the problems and quests of our era as well as fans of contemporary literature. Transcribing and commenting in his own way on conversations with 33 celebrated authors, Anteos Chrysostomidis focuses on a specific subject in each interview, depending on the interests of the interviewee. Subjects relating to the age in which we live—the challenges facing democracy in the West, religious fanaticism, the rise of nationalism, the crisis in moral values, racism, Europe’s historical traumas, sexual liberation—are interwoven with literary issues such as literature’s future and its positive, and sometimes negative, impact on society. A stroll through an entrancing world that reads almost like a novel.
