The author’s tales from Karpathos, an island full of mesmerizing people and a dazzling landscape, are nothing but sheer poetry in my ears....
Jinkinson paints his images from a palette that is so rich in colours and light and this is done with the greatest respect for the friendship he has developed with local people...
I love the descriptions of the characters, the bread making women, the young girls, men in the cafeneion, winds, sea, fish, birds, pathos and humour. Roger Jinkinson is a gifted writer of short stories. Can also recommend "American Ikaros: The Search for Kevin Andrews"
The ex pat cliche book, portraying the Stoic Brit putting up with the vagaries of an unfamiliar culture is far away from this wonderful collection of stories. Buy it, enjoy it, love it. And if you didn't buy the first book, do so NOW !!
