A Novel

Niki is an extraordinary work of historical fiction. A sweeping look at Greek history told through the eyes of a woman whose life reflects the turmoil, hardships, tenacity, and profound love of family and country that so many experienced as they struggled to survive war, political turmoil, and the everyday hardships of life. Niki is at once a searing story of one woman’s experiences and a master class in modern Greek history. A must-read for readers interested in the intersection of history and humanity.” —Yvette Manessis Corporon, internationally bestselling author of Where the Wandering Ends, When the Cypress Whispers, and Something Beautiful Happened

Niki is an exquisite novel about time, ideology, allegiance, and chance. Christos Chomenidis takes us on a powerful, moving ride through modern Greek history, highlighting personal and political turbulence and the inextricability of familial and national narratives. Patricia Felisa Barbeito’s spirited translation is energetic and emotionally resonant, and Niki’s unforgettable voice sings with the candid yet tender retrospection of a long, eventful life and an otherworldly, playful omniscience. Charming, raucous, compassionate, and smart. I loved it.” —Natalie Bakopoulos, author of Scorpionfish and The Green Shore

“A woman’s story becomes that of a country in this powerful, flamboyant novel.” —Historia

“Chomenidis achieves the most difficult task: transmitting to us History’s most emotional and human moments.” —To Vima

“In the most direct and remarkable way Chomenidis sheds light on people’s actions. As Milan Kundera puts it, ‘The novelist is neither historian nor prophet: he is an explorer of existence.’” —Kathimerini
