The North Winds Arrived Early
UoM Custom Book Centre, 2011 - 166 pages
Though the subject matter of this exceptional, small book by Th. Papastergiou moves on an autobiographical axis and evolves within the dramatic events of the German Occupation of Greece, the Resistance, the Civil War and their ramifications, it is imbued in an ambience of refined courtesy, high ethos and genuine love for humankind and for things.
