"A series of comic vignettes plumbs the cultural condition of contemporary Greece ... typically portrayed as a nation of hapless victims or adolescent derelicts...Paradias' tableaux are consistently offbeat and often very funny, even more so if the stories are free of artistic embellishment, as he insists they are.
A thoughtful and amusing look at a troubled nation's soul."
".. if you like your humor shaken, spiked with candor, 96 proof, topped off with afruit loop twist and all served up with a gaudy umbrella, then put your dribblebib on and toss back these shooters.
No hangovers, I promise...you'll only be thirsting for more."
Mandy Tyra, Roadie Notes
"The stories range from joyous to heart wrenching and every emotion in between and whoever the reader is, no matter who you are, you are likely to find at least one story that you can take a look and find at least a small piece of yourself in. "
Mike Mitchell, Geek Nerdery
"Its insights into the odd characters Konstantine Paradias has met shows an underclass that can't tell that Greece is sinking into destitution, because they're down there already themselves. Highly recommended."
