Things Can Only Get Feta: Two journalists and their crazy dog living through the Greek Crisis
After an Arctic winter, a British recession, and a downturn in the newspaper industry, two journalists and their dog embark on an adventure in the wild and beautiful southern Peloponnese. A perfect plan, except for one thing. Greece is deep in economic crisis. And if fiscal failure can’t overturn the couple’s escapade in rural Greece, perhaps macabre rural customs, a scorpion invasion, zero dog-tolerance, health scares, and touchy expats will.
This is a humorous and insightful foray into one of the last unspoilt regions of Greece. It is full of encounters with warm-hearted, often eccentric, Greeks who prove time and time again that Greece has heroes, if not euros. In a hillside village in the Mani, the locals share their lives, their laughter and their stories and help chart the couple’s journey back to happiness in troubled times.
Peter Kerr, the best-selling author of Snowball Oranges described it as: “An engaging humour-spiced book that entertains and informs in equal measure.”
