Anthony Marra: The Tsar of Love and Techno: Stories, Review by Tessy Baila




Wild-Seas  Praises  


  • It is worthwhile to read the “Wild Seas”, to travel through the troubled pages of history in a not so distant era, to travel with Captain M. Huma and his caique “Evangelistria” and to worry about the role that The individual is called upon to take up in History, as if the time is right.  Emilios Solomou, Literature.gr
  • The “Wild Seas” is a serious book and the respect to the readers has been  the writer’s prerequisite for its composition and creation. Paschalis Pandjios, Fractalart.gr
  • Tessy Baila sought a way to turn the historical event into a historical novel. With the experience of her rich narrative technique she managed to achieve this “reincarnation”. Manos Kontoleon, diastixo.gr
  • What the reader of this book wins is a rich,  multifarious experience – the knowledge of a long-lost world, a code of behavior that has been put into frustration the current age of speed.  Dimitris Stefanakis, culturenow.gr
  • Being faithful to the authentic documents she has from  Miltiadis Humas’ family and the historical sources, Tessy Baila enriches her story with fictional elements, cools it with the pure freshness of the seawater, purifies it and makes an extraordinary, literary, high Claimed text. Aphrodite Vakali, thinkfree.gr
  • A nautical historical novel read out breathlessly.  Efoplistis, issue July 2017. 
  • It is a Masterpiece. Read it. Kostas Trahanas, maxitisartas.gr
  • Τhe talent of Tessy Baila dares, like Miltiadis Humas, to confront the difficult ones, turning her back to whichever easiness and to win, as always, in the fields of the battles of literature. Kosta Kontoleon, thebest.gr 
  • Before she became widely known, she was singled out for her unique ability to create terribly beautiful images, combined with her incredibly lyrical writing. Maria Andrikopoulou, bookcity.gr
  • I have the impression that I will always feel obliged to Tesy Baila. She spent almost two years describing the story of our father. It would not be an exaggeration if I would call this book “a masterpiece” because I lived her anxiety to perform, as faithfully as it was, the meaning of the History. Today, It is very moving to see, here in Samos, our ninety one year-old mother, reading the book every day, excited and saying: “But how did she know all these and write it so well?” Giannis Houmas, son of the hero of the book.
  • Tessy Baila, having conducted a thorough investigation into personal and public records and having read all the relevant bibliography, presents the naval Resistance of the conquered in a novel way simple, easy and pleasant-to-read. Eri Ritsos, psichogios.gr
  •  This particular book could not only for its historical testimony, but also for the clear  wording, the clearly formulated thoughts and the plethora of the subjects that enlightens (refuge, war, allied forces, Resistance, love, joys of life and more) to be read in the texts of the Modern Greek Literature in the lyceum school books and even better in a student Reading Club. Martha Iordanidou, teacher, thinkfree.gr
  • Despite the messages of heroism and movement in an ideal context of life, the book respects the era, the formed social ethics, the values ​​of the people. The choice of third-person storytelling and its interchange with the interactive parts offers the work the desirable balance between intimacy – which in any case reflects the earthy faces of the work – and the safety distance required to exist to manage to convincingly convey the historical-social reality of the time. Efi Riza, bookpress.gr
