Bowl of Fruit (1907), by Panayotis Cacoyannis —
I loved this book. I had it for two years and kept putting it off even though, as a writer and artist, I love books that include writers and artists. I started it at some point and put it down. I’m only mentioning this because I don’t want you to give up like I did.
This is my first book by Cacoyannis and I think I was expecting a serious read but this isn’t serious at all. It’s really funny and witty and honest and I ended up loving it. The story is simple: a ghost writer with a personal interest visits a writer to interview him for his biography. The secrets she has to reveal will turn his world upside down. I would say that the story is there to support these amazing characters and their odd thoughts. Go ahead. Take a chance. You just might laugh out loud
