We are Made of Earth: Greece’s leading novelist explores refugee crisis

Panos Karnezis is possibly the leading Greek novelist of his generation, and one of Europe’s most distinguished storytellers.

In We are Made of Earth… he takes us, perhaps irresistibly, to the current refugee crisis and, although his location is dystopian, it can be readily imagined as a remote Greek island on which both the tragedy and the comedy of human weakness are acted out.’

Richard Pine reviews We are Made of Earth by Panos Karnezis for The Irish Times.
