Moussaka to My Ears
Lulu.com, May 11, 2009 - 311 pages
John and his half-Greek wife Yvonne-Maria moved from the UK to Rhodes in 2005, the account of which was told in his first book, FETA COMPLI! MOUSSAKA takes up where FETA COMPLI! leaves off, with Yvonne and John settling into life on Rhodes and coming into contact with some great characters who live around them out there. Plus, there's another helping of reminiscences from past years and other parts of Greece and Europe in general; like the time when Yvonne was Miss August on a calendar that graced the walls of innumerable offices all across Germany after meeting a German businessman on a beach in Corfu. Then there's Manolis, the "Six Million Drachma Man," who climbs olive trees even though he only has one and a half legs! The "Lonely Goatherd" comes by, as does Kostas, the local who shows them which weeds are great to eat. Yvonne helps Greco-Turkish relations during an evening out on Samos and John reluctantly become the elephant man for a while.
