Moderators (Przemysław Kordos/ Warsaw, Michał Nogaś/ Warsaw, Łukasz Wojtusik/ Kraków, Kama Buchalska/ Kutno, Szczepan Kopyt/ Poznań and Michał Bzinkowski, translator of the book/ Wrocław) have been asking Mr. Tsitas about the writing process, language created for the book, the construction of the main hero and his place in Greece circa 2004.

The reception of the book both in Greece, in Poland and in other countries has also been the topic, as well as the up to date context in which the book has been published in Polish edition.
