Aristo's Family

(2000)
A novel by

 
The narrative is set in Cyprus; the main characters being, Aristo, an archaeologist who has turned his home into a small private museum, and his teenage son, Pavlos, who now live alone together.

Aristo's obsessive need to trace and belong to his family--even though he is told they were all burnt and left unidentifiable during the Turkish invasion of Cyprus--has estranged his English wife, and is gradually distancing his only child, while in turn, Pavlos has an increasing need to belong to a father who will make time for him.

Then Katherine arrives--another ingredient to confuse an already confused, young and impressionable mind.

But then, as the practices at Papas's late-night museum "staff meetings" unfold themselves to Pavlos, the boy is led deeper and deeper into a sinister confrontation with the "family".

This beautifully written novel, with its wonderful descriptive passages about the museum and the Troodos Mountains of Cyprus, has a tautness and nervous energy that carries the reader on.

You will actually hear the voices of Aristo and the "family" talking as you turn the pages... Aristo's Family will haunt the reader long after the last chapter has been read and the book finally laid to rest.

"An atmospheric, vibrant, almost spooky page turner that might easily become something of a cult." - Reay Tannahill
