Fakinou, Eugenia

(1945-    ) Greek author of four novels, of which only To Evdhomo Roucho (1983; trans as The Seventh Garment 1991 UK) has appeared in English. An imaginative recapitulation of the sorrows of modern Greek history, this employs numerous elements of Magic Realism, including supernatural events, elements from Mythology and the unifying device of "the Tree", a (sapient) figure of Greek identity and endurance.
