The Famous Quartet of Piraeus by Skabardonis & Kerasidis - Book Recommendation
The Famous Quartet of Piraeus is a biographical graphic novel that explores the lives and careers of a band of four Greek musicians pre-World War Two. The band is formed in a cafe around 1934 and did go on to record multiple records to critical acclaim. Their success catches the eye of authorities who are displeased at some of the quartet's lyrics.
THINGS I LOVE IN THIS BOOK
The colour profile complements the story and its timeline. The dialogue is natural and the book does not seem to shy away from uncomfortable themes like infidelity, bribery, drug addiction, etc
Some of the Greek words used in the book may be confusing for those unfamiliar with the language.
WHO THIS IS FOR
The Famous Quartet of Piraeus is for any music enthusiast who loves the historical side of it.
