The Purloined Letter by Fani Papageorgiou


Product Details

"I like The Purloined Letter very much. It has a dolorous, stately, piercing, almost martial music, like an Elizabethan court dance or Miles Davis in his electric period. It's funny too."—Edwin Frank

Comments on the author’s previous collections include:

“…as Papageorgiou’s curious, delightful book reminds us (and as Dionne Warwick once observed), a house is not a home; it’s always just a little unfamiliar, just slightly beyond our easy occupation. Which is precisely what draws us to the door, to the brie y lighted windows.” —David Orr, New York Times Book Review
