With Feeling

A friend of mine read Zorba the Greek ten years ago during a tough stretch. I like to imagine that it helped resolve matters. I read Zorba last week and I found it a solid diversion. Most likely it should have been read 15-20 years ago, but i was still impressed with lyricism, actually surprised by its violence and and pleased with the fact that Zorba was actually Macedonian and that he died in Serbia being attended by wife, fifty years his junior, and terrified of the meddling of both physicians and priests.
