Description


Consumed by a myth about Zeus, a magic sword, and soul mates, Greek-American professor Thair Mylopoulos-Wright has spent much of her life searching for her Other Half. At thirty-one, she spends a summer in Greece; there, alone on a tranquil island, she begins writing stories about her grandmother's experiences in 1940s Egypt, her mother's youth in 1960s Greece, and finally, her own life in contemporary America--trying to make sense of her future by exploring the past. Spanning Thair's life from thirty-one to thirty-six, The Greek Persuasion explores human sexuality, the complexity of mother-daughter relationships, and the choices women of different generations make when choosing--or settling--for "Mr. (or Ms.) Good Enough." Will Thair ever find that missing part of her that Zeus chopped off with his magic sword? Or is the concept of The One just one big fairy tale that has left her searching for someone who doesn't exist?
