The following is a mostly chronological list of all pieces regarding the main characters of my stories relating directly or indirectly to Greece, namely those about Anthi (Kanéna), Cryssarina, Eléni, Goddess Athena, Jenny, M, and Patrick. These pieces include alexandrines, haikus, prose, series, short stories, songs, sonnets, and tankas. Please note that some of these pieces are on the sensual side.

Pourquoi certaines œuvres ne seraient-elles pas plus précieuses que certains êtres humains ? (Why would some works not be more valuable than some human beings?) Yann Moix, from Une Simple lettre d’amour (A Simple Love Letter)

Are there must-read books? Yes! Any book (all books) by Friedrich Nietzsche, Philip Roth, Milan Kundera, Michel Onfray, and Yann Moix, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare, Darwin’s On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, Freud’s The Future of an Illusion, Ken Grimwood’s Replay, and, of course, The Norton Anthology of English Literature (all three volumes). There are, surely, countless others…

Anthi walks on water when I look at her heart
It seems some apparitions never stop their flight
She also floats above ground when I meet her eyes

I still cannot believe you have become my wife

I only read and fitfully write them

Apart from books in foreign languages that were not translated to English or French, I do not review books anymore. A book is supposed to be read alone or to someone else. It is an experience involving the writer and the reader, and the listener. Some say that it is a sacrosanct relationship. Two worlds that meet and collide in text via light, with an image from time to time to illustrate a moment of truth or a lie.
