In this way what really goes on in Vangelis’ country will be known abroad, without it being filtered or misrepresented by the media. This is the true Greek experience through a novel.
Athens, Greece -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/17/2013 -- Vangelis Bekas is a 37 years old Greek writer. Two of his novels have been published in Greece and they have received good reviews in all the major Greek newspapers. Unfortunately, there is no option for literary translation with Google Translate. Literary translation is a difficult and costly work, carried out by specialized people. So, Vangelis Bekas reaching out to all to fund the translation of his novel from Greek into English, from an experienced translator, with whom he has already made an arrangement.
Vangelis believes that his third novel "The Optimists", which has just been published in Greece, will be of interest to the English-speaking audience. It is a crime novel about the revival of Nazism, in the country that gave birth to democracy, and about the corruption of politicians, which eventually led Greece to financial disaster and poverty.
This project will unveil what really goes on in Greece, without it being filtered or misrepresented by the media. Readers will know all about Greece through the mystery of a crime novel. The translation will cost 4000$, and the publishing house which has published the Greek version cannot support this effort at this period in time, even though it is a big publishing house. Vangelis also mentions that he doesn’t have another job, and it is very difficult to find one, as about 1/3 of the people in Greece are unemployed.
This campaign will receive all of the funds contributed by Wed 31 Jul 11:59PM PT.
