Vavoulis, founder, KFCF-FM Free Speech radio "An extraordinary account of the Axis occupation of Greece..." -- G. Harocopos, WW2 Historian and resistance fighter. "MY FATHER HAD THIS LUGER... is about timeless things that transcend war and which are as relevant today as the years in which the events of this story took place. This is a story of family, community and the ways in which countless small rituals and other shared things give human life its meaning. It is about loyalty and sticking together, about personal triumph, about hope, about the universality of childhood and the importance of imagination. It is about the ability of the human mind to find comedy even amid awful things, and take nourishment from it." - N.J. Slabbert, Literary Director, THE SWORD OF ZEUS PROJECT. A summer book choice of the Chicago-based Greek Star newspaper and the Boston-based Hellenic Voice.
