Aegean Dream by Dario Ciriello

Aegean DreamAegean Dream by Dario Ciriello is the book we are reading this month in our reading group. It’s a true story set on Greece’s real “Mamma Mia” island of Skopelos.

Amazon’s description is:
Comic and tragic by turns, Aegean Dream is a story of love, resilience, and the power of friendship. A compelling window on the daily life of a small Greek island and the spirit of its people, this book also provides striking insights into the broken institutions that would soon shake the entire global economy.

– What’s it really like to live on a tiny Greek island?
– Why is the Greek economy so messed up?
– What IS ‘The Secret’?
…and what do mysterious skulls, Russian prostitutes, President Bush the elder, and Pierce Brosnan have to do with it all?

I’m looking forward to reading it.

  1. Greetings, Julaina 🙂 This just popped up on a search and–as a writer yourself–you can imagine what a big smile it put on my face! I hope he group got something out of it.


    • Hi Dario,

      Yes, we enjoyed the book. I still feel as if I’ve been to Greece just by reading your book. I heard about it when you spoke at the Tri-Valley California Writers Club conference in Pleasanton last spring. The leader of our Reading group is Greek and has been there many times to do research for her book.

      Does our wife still make soap?

      Thanks for your comment. It made me happy to know that my posts can be found.
