Description

Translated here for the first time, Closed Doors, an annoying and frustrating book according to its author, is an intriguing and eye-opening account of the strugle for independence of Cyprus, a small country which joined the European Union in 2004. Closed Doors presents a moving and insightful contribution to post-colonial studies, intended by Costas Montis as an answer to Bitter Lemons, by well-known English author and colonial official Lawrence Durrell.

As stted in the translator’s introduction, the two books constitute “a debate between the powerful artists who produced political books to influence the depiction of the narrative of the struggle for Cypriot independence. For Montis, Closed Doors was an attempt to reappropriate that narrative from Durrell, to present a picture of the struggle for freedom by a Cypriot who, as he says in his brief explanation, had lived through the entire four years of the revolt.”
