Description

Seven Appointments with the Aegean tells of a series of trips made to seven Greek islands. They were undertaken with different objectives in mind - objectives so defined that each trip is more like a search or even a pilgrimage. Once arrived at the islands, however, the goals are blurred by the fascinating diversity that each one boasts, be it in its idiosyncratic history or its landscape and its characters. And if the search brings many gratifications, there is no shortage of troubles.

Tourist brochures often give the impression that Greece is its islands, but lovers of the Hellenic world know that both island and continental Greece are essentially complementary; hence the stays there between each departure and return (in this case in the Peloponnese and Athens) form an integral part of the series of appointments with the Aegean.

Author

Cristina Chase Jordon. Born in Devon (England), she has lived in Granada since 1975. Her first forays into literature were a collection of short stories (“Cyril and other cruel tales”) and a novel (“Almas de ante azul”), both published in Lumen. A regular traveler to Greece for years, she has published, as a result of her enthusiasm for this country, three books in the Supplementa Mediterránea Collection of the University of Malaga:

“The Cyclades of Theodore Bent” (translation), “Pilgrimage through the Peloponnese” and “The Acropolis, unexpected spoils”. This book also has Greece as a background.
