Quotes & Awards

  • “Darkly comic…Liontas shows compassion for her characters even as she plumbs their dysfunction. Seeded with family anecdotes, the novel’s true heart is one filled with love and forgiveness.”

    Minneapolis Star-Tribune

  • “Narrator Robertson Dean…faithfully delivers Stavros’ infuriating behaviors, patriarchal tyranny, and biting comments and shines when expressing Stavros’ wry outsider’s observations. He deftly creates Stavros’ second-generation-Greek-American daughters, late wife, and black mistress with the slightest shifts in voice and attitude. The story is engaging…but it’s Dean’s sensitive performance that keeps the novel from slipping into caricature. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”


  • “Liontas adds tremendously to the novel’s ambiance through Stavros’ idiomatic language, expertly reveals the layers of her characters’ lives, and perfectly captures their emotional temperatures in an unputdownable read.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A lively portrait…this simultaneously sad and funny story of a first-generation immigrant and his rocky family relationships will resonate with a broad range of readers.”


  • “Liontas’ multigenerational tale of miscommunications and mistakes is a delectable, provocative achievement.”

    Library Journal

  • “A tale of an immigrant family rendered with unusual care.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A New York Times Editor’s Choice
  • Winner of an AudioFile Earphones Award
