More About This Title ΑΜΕΡΙΚΗ '62

English

In October 1962, Petros Archontides, a Cypriot journalist, visits the United States on a scholarship from the University of Syracuse in New York State. Journalists from several countries are on the same course, among them a Turk, Mehmet Riza Ozgul. Despite the tradition of antagonism and suspicion between Greeks and Turks, Archontides and Ozgul very quickly become friends. From the start, this journey to the New World has two aspects for Petros Archontides. One aspect is clearly external: the spaces in which he moves, the people he meets, the situations he is involved in, the opportunities and adversities which, like a modern-day Odysseus, he experiences in his peregrinations. The second aspect is his frequent immersion and wandering in his inner universe, in the subconscious, in worlds and in anti-worlds which the sometimes upright and sometimes inverted America erects in front of him. The book is set during the Cuban missile crisis.
