Elias Papadimitrakopoulos

About the Author
Elias Papadimitrakopoulos, one of the most admired Greek prose writers, was born in 1930 in Pyrgos (Eleia), Greece. He has published three collections of short stories, Toothpaste with Chlorophyll, Maritime Hot Baths and The General Archivist. In this important first collection of English-language translations of his work, Papadimitrakopoulos combines his remarkably subtle gift for precision of language with the profound sensitivity and compassion for his subjects that has made his reputation as a master painter of the triste and ephemeral.
