Excerpt

Giù dai ghermiti scanni,
Razza maligna, inetta,
Che fra venali inganni
Pompeggiandoti abjetta,
Raccogli infami frutti
Dal disonor di tutti!

Ah! non bastò di questa
Patria incestare il seno?
La veneranda testa
Premer di giogo osceno?
Offrir nudo il materno
Fianco al barbaro scherno?

Ond'ella, a regnar nata,
Con tremulo ginocchio
Segue, putta spregiata,
Il tenebroso cocchio,
Su cui breve fortuna
Due manigoldi aduna.

Misera, e invan tu speri

Author of the Day

Effie Kammenou
Effie Kammenou grew up listening to stories about her mother's childhood in Athens and her experiences during WWII, and her father's tales of how his family came to America. After her mother passed away, Kammenou felt inspired to write a family saga that spans fifty years and crosses two continents. As our Author of the Day, Kammenou talks about this debut novel, Evanthia's Gift, tells us more about her family and reveals why her books also contain all kinds of interesting recipes.
