FOR PEOPLE WHO CARE ABOUT CORFU: 4 BOOKS




“CORFU BLUES”
by JIM POTTS (Ars Interpres)

“Perfectly captures the colour of the Greek islands and their people." (Proper Home Greece). “A positive contribution towards an understanding of modern Greece” (Athens News)


“THE CAT OF PORTOVECCHIO, CORFU TALES”,
MARIA STRANI-POTTS (Brandl & Schlesinger)

“Read it, it'll change your life and the way you love (and live) the Corfu idyll.” (ISLAND)
“A relentless and seductive intelligence… never less than provocative. A pleasure to read and, even for Corfiots, an education” (The Anglo-Hellenic Review)


THE IONIAN ISLANDS AND EPIRUS, A CULTURAL HISTORY”, JIM POTTS (SIGNAL BOOKS, OXFORD, 2010)

“A mosaic portrait of the Ionian Islands and special places of interest in Epirus, this book focuses on the landscapes, legends, traditions and historical events that have appealed most strongly to the imaginations of writers, residents and travellers. This book reveals the extraordinary cultural legacy of this beautiful part of the world.”


“TO POULIMA TIS PANOREAS” ("The Pimping of Panorea"), MARIA STRANI-POTTS, CorfuBooks.com.

“An absolute must-read” (ISLAND).

“Πρόκειται πραγματικά για ένα λογοτέχνημα-ράπισμα και ταυτόχρονα μια αφοπλιστική περιγραφή του χώρου που ζούμε, ποιότητες που δίνουν στο βιβλίο τον χαρακτήρα μανιφέστου, το οποίο μπορεί να συνοψιστεί στο «τέρμα τα λόγια, ώρα για δράση” Dr.Kostas Kardamis.

“I didn’t just read it, I studied it closely. This book should be read by political candidates, and by all those who work in institutions and who hold any kind of power, or who hold the fate of the island in their hands.” Dimitris Konidaris, Enimerosi.

“The Cat of Portovecchio, Corfu Tales” and “Corfu Blues” are available in Corfu at PLOUS Bookshop, Nikiforou Theotoki Street.
