Author and poet Patricia Storace lived in Athens, Greece on the corner of Phyrne (named for a 4th-century B.C. courtesan) and Fanourios (named for a Christian saint). And it is on this street where her journey through Greece begins. With blithe humor and bright style, Storace conjures up anarchic cities and idyllic towns and harbors where the Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman empires continue to maintain a presence. This program includes an exclusive interview with the author who discusses her work and answers questions about her life in Greece.
