Ikonomou's tales exhibit the plight of these worst tormented by the Greek financial crisis--laid-off employees, hungry young children. within the city sprawl among Athens and Piraeus, the narratives roam restlessly throughout the impoverished working-class quarters positioned off the vacationer routes. everyone seems to be dreaming of break out: to the mountains, to an island or a palatial property, right into a Hans Christian Andersen tale international. What are they fleeing? The previous woes--gossip, watchful associates, the oppression and indifference of the rich--now made infinitely worse. In Ikonomou's concrete streets, the rain is often looming, the politicians' slogans are overlooked, and the police stay a violent, threatening presence offstage. but even on the fringe of destitution, his women and men act for themselves, attempting to protect what little unity is still in a deeply atomized society, and in a single method or one other discovering their very own voice. there's religion the following, deep faith--though little or none in those that habitually ask for it.
