Book of Jon [Paperback]

Author : Sikelianos, Eleni

Cultural Writing. Women's Studies. THE BOOK OF JON is a saga of the rise and fall of family lines--a tale marked by bohemia, Greek poets, intellectuals, drugs and homelessness. It is the story of eccentrics and survivors, the strength of personal vision and the nature of addiction, and what it does to families. With a seamless weave of letters, reminiscences, poems and journal entries, Sikelianos creates a loving portrait--and an unblinking indictment--of her father. Jon, a multi-talented, eccentric visionary, emerges as a brilliant, charming, irresponsible, frustrating, and ultimiately tragic hero. An exquisitely rendered exploration of the harrowing and motivating forces of family, history, and individual choices.
