About the Book

Toothpaste with Chlorophyll and Maritime Hot Baths are the first two collections of short stories by Elias Papadimitrakopoulos. These books have been reprinted several times in Greece. Papadimitrakopoulos combines his remarkably subtle gift for precision of language with the profound sensitivity and compassion for his subjects that has made his reputation as a master painter of the triste and ephemeral. He received the Petros Haris Foundation Prize from the Academy of Athens in 2010 and the National Literary Award in 2015. His collected short stories are now gathered in a six-volume set published by Gavriilidis. He lives in Athens and, during the summer, on the island of Paros.

The book is translated and has notes and an introduction by John Taylor and features illustrations by Alekos Fassianos.
