His characters are the people who live there — the priest, the whore, the doctor, the seamstress, the mayor — and the occasional animal: a centaur, a parrot that recites Homer, a horse called History.

Their lives intersect, as lives do in a small place, and they know each others secrets: the hidden crimes, the mysteries, the little infamies that men commit.Karnezis observes his villagers with a worldly eye, and creates a place where magic invariably loses out to harsh reality, a place full of passion, cruelty, and deep reserves of black humor.

These stories recall the masters of the form — the wit and sophisticated playfulness of Saki and the primal fatalism of Prosper Merimee — but they are utterly original and prove that Karnezis is one of the freshest new voices in English fiction.Panos Karnezis was born in Greece in 1967. He moved to England in 1992 to study engineering, and worked in industry before he started to write. He was awarded an M.A. in Creative Writing by the University of East Anglia. He lives in Oxford.
