"One of the great and lasting books about Greece."—Patrick Leigh Fermor "An intense and compelling account of an educated, sensitive archaeologist wandering the back country during the civil war. Half a century on, still one of the best books on Greece as it was before 'development.'"—The Rough Guide to the Greek Islands "He also is in love with the country…but he sees the other side of that dazzling medal or moon…If you want some truth about Greece, here it is."—Louis MacNeice, The Observer "One of the best and most honest books about the modern Greeks."—E. R. Dodds "Kevin Andrews experienced the dangers of the countryside during the civil war. The Flight of Ikaros, the book he produced from his travels, remains not only one of the greatest we have about postwar Greece—memorializing a village culture that has almost vanished—but also one of the most moving accounts I have ever read of people caught up in political turmoil…Flightwas first published in 1959 and last reprinted by Penguin in 1984. For too many years, this rare account has languished out of print."—Wall Street Journal In 1947, at the age of twenty-three, Kevin Andrews received a Fulbright Fellowship to study medieval fortresses in the Peloponnese. Andrews spent the long summers of 1948 to 1951 traveling through the region and the winters writing in Athens. This opportunity to travel through little-frequented areas during Greece’s postwar civil war—and before the advent of tourism, industrialization, or easy communications—brought Andrews into immediate contact with village populations, shepherd clans, and the paramilitary vigilantes who kept their own kind of order in the provinces, as well as with the displaced peasants of the Athenian slums. The close experience of all these lives took shape in The Flight of Ikaros, first published in 1959. Paul Dry Books is pleased to return to print this modern travel classic.

Ikaros

He knows there is racial strife, and he also knows that the Americans as a whole
are working to correct it. ... the cultural divestment that the rest of the world
spends so much emotional capital on and just becoming one of them, an
American.

In the world of Deja Pascal—one of beauty, hope, and endless perfection—lurked a darkness. The bloody, cold reality of World War II and its unnumbered shattered lives lay just beyond the trees of their home. Death and loss were unreal to her in the blissful isolation of French hillside until the day a black car carrying a man in a black suit arrived. Watching from a hiding place in the woods, Deja looked on hopelessly as her parents were thrown into the back of a Nazi truck. Pallid and weak, her father, Luc, returned two years later. She never saw her mother again. Compounding the loss of her mother and the effect of the camps on her father, Deja lost her closest friend and confidant in college some years later. Deja’s spirit broke from loss, and she became depressed, finally culminating in her taking her own life. Despondent and without hope, Luc, a scientist by trade, decided to use his greatest invention, a device he coined, the Spirit Box, to save her soul from death and bring her back to the world as a time-traveling, robotic being suffering for a second chance at a real life, one with meaning and love. Adventuring through ancient Greece, native America, and other fantastical times, she evolved into something more, something greater—a spirit with purpose. The Deja who left the world a saddened young woman came back strong and potent. She came back as Ikaros.

A New York Times Notable Book for 2017--Now in Paperback For more than thirty years, Patience Gray—author of the celebrated cookbook Honey from a Weed—lived in a remote area of Puglia in southernmost Italy. She lived without electricity, modern plumbing, or a telephone, grew much of her own food, and gathered and ate wild plants alongside her neighbors in this economically impoverished region. She was fond of saying that she wrote only for herself and her friends, yet her growing reputation brought a steady stream of international visitors to her door. This simple and isolated life she chose for herself may help explain her relative obscurity when compared to the other great food writers of her time: M. F. K. Fisher, Elizabeth David, and Julia Child. So it is not surprising that when Gray died in 2005, the BBC described her as an “almost forgotten culinary star.” Yet her influence, particularly among chefs and other food writers, has had a lasting and profound effect on the way we view and celebrate good food and regional cuisines. Gray’s prescience was unrivaled: She wrote about what today we would call the Slow Food movement—from foraging to eating locally—long before it became part of the cultural mainstream. Imagine if Michael Pollan or Barbara Kingsolver had spent several decades living among Italian, Greek, and Catalan peasants, recording their recipes and the significance of food and food gathering to their way of life. In Fasting and Feasting, biographer Adam Federman tells the remarkable—and until now untold—life story of Patience Gray: from her privileged and intellectual upbringing in England, to her trials as a single mother during World War II, to her career working as a designer, editor, translator, and author, and describing her travels and culinary adventures in later years. A fascinating and spirited woman, Patience Gray was very much a part of her times but very clearly ahead of them.
