Book Club: Inviting Authors, Vangelis Raptopoulos

Vangelis Raptopoulos talks, on a personal note, about literature and art in the conditions of isolation. The film “Brief Encounter” becomes the inspiration for an… encounter with Menis Koumandareas’ novel “Kyria Koula”, and also for the realization that good art is like good wine: it gets better with age. In his recent novel, The Man who Burned Down Greece (Kerdos Publications), Vangelis Raptopoulos concerns himself with the issue of information in digital reality.
