THE FINAL KISS - GEORGE S. POLITIS / ΤΟ ΤΕΛΕΥΤΑΙΟ ΦΙΛΙ - ΓΙΩΡΓΟΣ Σ. ΠΟΛΙΤΗΣ
Lying ill in the hospital, Michalis Daniel reveals a location and a dark secret to Elena, the young nurse taking care of him. “You cannot go there on a rainy day…” he tells her. Then, he takes a deep breath and starts telling her about all the things he has kept to himself over the years. He talks for hours, describing himself as a cruel man; he looks back with regret. If only he had heard what Olga had said that last day, if only… then his entire life would have taken a completely different route.
A few days later, Elena returns to his bedside to tell him the news, but it is too late. Michalis Daniil has passed away.
A betrayal during the dark years of the German Occupation, an unfulfilled love, an injustice, violent repeated rape of a deaf woman, and then, some years later, a series of deaths and unanswered questions create the thread of a novel that is ordinary yet complicated at ethe same time, just like the stories that Destiny weaves while ignoring people’s dreams, wishes and hopes...
