I’ll get to the blog part below. But first, I should note that this is a platform for my short stories, which are mostly set in Park Ex. In case you’re not from these parts, Park Extension is a working-class neighbourhood in Montreal where generations of immigrants have made their homes. Thousands of Greeks settled in Park Ex during the Sixties, Seventies and Eighties: they built churches, raised kids and subsequently fled to the suburbs in the Nineties. Some Greeks remain, though they are fewer and older.
My stories are about all these Greeks, among whom I grew up. They describe a place, a time and a certain mentality.
I hope you like them and that you check in often or subscribe. I have posted two stories to start with and plan to add a new one about once a month.
As for the blog part, between short stories you will find me writing regularly about the Greek diaspora, travels abroad, and running at home and abroad.
No doubt, things will evolve.
