A natural follow-up after reading Homer in Denby's Great Books, for the Greeks today are a product of their ancient magnificence. With a poet's eye, lush language and a humerous touch, Storace recounts her year in Greece with friends and strangers -- all still steeped in religion, superstition, ancient rites, pride and machismo, but with a great capacity for life and conviviality.
