Prof. Aris Fioretos
Der letzte Grieche

Jannis Georgiadis, the son of a farmer from Greece, leaves his homeland in the mid-1960s to follow his childhood sweetheart to Sweden. He temporarily finds paradise there: He finds accommodation with a doctor, dreams of studying hydrology, and finally falls in love with his host’s nanny. Yet when a child arrives far too early, it is not only one of the Greek guest worker’s visions of the future that fails. Aris Fioretos’ story about family, migration, memory, and delusion is a virtuoso novel about the 20th century in Europe.
