Ioannis Kondylakis, 1861-1920, was born in Viannos, Crete. He studied philosophy in Chania and taught in Modi on his native island. This is an anthropological novel in that Kondylakis, along with his contemporaries, sought to preserve the ways and mores of the Greek countryside by faithfully recording them in novels and short stories.
