Charmed for decades by the music of Oscar-winning Greek composer Mános Hadjidákis, David Cade explores Athens as news breaks at the end of 2009 that Greece is in serious financial difficulty. After years in the neighbouring Middle East, the author talks to Athenians, examines many of the city s most extraordinary attractions, and carefully surveys key aspects of Greece s modern history. The result is both a thrilling account of what makes Athens tick and a vivid explanation of why Greece is as it is today. Widely researched and full of fascinating detail, Athens - The Truth offers both a gripping read for the armchair traveller at home and a rich alternative to the traveller s traditional guidebook.

David Cade has worked in classical record production, universities, and theatre. He has an MA in Linguistics from the University of London.

Recensioner i media

Ekathimerini newspaper (Athens, Greece): "A Westerner finding Athens warm and welcoming in December of 2009 - as startling reports emerge of the Greek debt crisis - makes for a story worth retelling... the book is a thought-provoking, well-paced account ... Years spent living in the Middle East give Cade a unique perspective". Neos Kosmos newspaper (Melbourne, Australia): "The author's ability to dredge up odd historical curiosa will impress even veteran visitors to the city... Comprehensive detours into the stories of famous Greek musicians and artists are equally intriguing." Beatties Book Blog (Auckland, New Zealand): "I was immediately arrested by his 20-page introduction wherein he explains his fascination with all things Greek and offers readers a comprehensive, liberal, up-to-date, and entertaining view of the capital of Modern Greece."
