The English translation of Yannis Skarimbas' novel Mariambas (translated by Leo Marshall, foreword Dimitris Tziovas) has just been published by the Centre of Byzantine, Ottoman and Modern Greek Studies of the University of Birmingham.
Approaching selected moments from ancient times to the present of Greek cultural and aesthetic geographies on the basis of a wide range of sources, the book examines diachronic spatiotemporal flows, some of which are mainly cultural, others urban or landscape-related, in conjunction with parallel currents of change and key issues of our time in the West more generally, but also in the East.
Travel, Tourism and Identity, edited by Gabriel R. Ricci (New Brunswick and London: Transaction Publishers, 2015), includes a chapter by David Wills, "Travel Writers and Greece: The Legacy of Sir Patrick Leigh Fermor".
