Entry Description

One Year on Kythera tells the story of life on the Greek island of Kythera. Over the years, the island has suffered from massive waves of emigration of its people abroad to the point of near depopulation. This book is a contemporary look into the lives of those who have chosen to remain on the island and the interaction between tradition and the effects of globalization as imprinted on the daily activities of village families, their homes, possessions, and surrounding environments.
