About the Author
David Fagan, born of nomadic Irish parents in 1958, spent his formative years in Africa, confused by circumstances beyond his control. After lunch on a Greek island day trip in 1983, he opted against reboarding the cruise boat. He has lived and worked on Hydra full-time, pursuing his alterna-tive lifestyle by any means that presented itself, since 1984. These days he lives in Kamini, a village in many ways remi-niscent of Hydra 25 years ago, the Hydra portrayed in this book. He has a keen interest in astronomy, history, Formula 1 motor racing, and international rugby; he understands the rules of cricket and has mostly forgotten how to drive.

Orally he used to be absolutely world-class. Now, finally, he's done for the second time what everyone who knew and knows him have been urging him to do for years: put his stories into writing.
And yes, he's getting the hang of it: it's entertaining all the time, hilarious pretty often and even reaching his stratospheric oral level once in a while.
He has lived so many absurd situations, has a keen and compassionate eye for his fellow island dwellers (whom he calls 'inmates'), both Greek and foreign. I'm sure the next one will be better again and I'm keeping the first two, if only because I think they'll be collectors items one day.
But I did enjoy the book and there are a number of really funny and frustrating incidents.
