Koula

Greek Literature Series
Menis Koumandareas
Translated by Kay Cicellis

At its heart, Koula is the story of an improbable love affair. It is the story of Koula, a middle-aged married woman who falls in love with a young man that she meets routinely on the subway ride home to her husband and kids. Attracted to older women (in fact, he occasionally accepts money to sleep with them), the young man in question introduces Koula to a different life than she’s used to, a life filled with cigarettes, seedy bars, and illicit meetings in a rundown apartment.

Filmed for Greek television, Koula is a stylistically bold book that ranges in tone as it charts the emotional fluctuations of these two characters, fully capturing their interior lives, from the anticipation surrounding their meeting to the dissolution of their affair.
