ABOUT THE BOOK
I met Manolis, a fisherman in his eighties, living alone in a small house at the beach.
One day he told me this story at eight o’clock in the morning, while drinking a whiskey together: “You know, I look a lot like Kirk Douglas”, he confided in me, looking very seriously. He proudly showed me a letter he received from the Hollywood actor, pictures and autographs included. The fisherman just decided one day to send his portrait to Kirk, telling him how much they looked alike. Tinseltown suddenly was just a letter away.. There is a magical Tinseltown feeling in this village, if you look close enough.
