Polychronis Koutsakis

Polychronis Koutsakis is a prize-winning Greek playwright, poet, and author of novels in several genres for young people and adults. Athenian Blues and Baby Blue (Bitter Lemon Press), the first of his books to be translated into English, are crime novels set in today's debt-ravaged Greece, featuring an unlikely trio of old friends - a professional assassin, a top Athenian cop, and a transgender sex worker. Sharp observation and fast-moving plots offer unusual insights into life, love and death in the cradle of our civilization.
