for Athens

Τη μέρα που πάγωσε ο ποταμός

Stavros Christodoulou|Greek edition
A crime turns into the occasion for a thorough analysis of society and characters, for refined literary descriptions of Athenian popular neighborhoods, the infamous bars and the ruling class that remains unharmed.

Stavros Christodoulou was born in 1963 in Nicosia, Cyprus. He studied law in Athens but has never practiced the legal profession since he had already dedicated himself to journalism at the end of the 1980s. He has worked as managing director of various magazines in Greece and Cyprus and currently works for the leading Cypriot newspaper Phileleftheros as a columnist. His first book Hotel National, published by Kalentis Publications in Athens in 2016, was shortlisted for the Cyprus State Literature Prize and for a competition run by the literary magazine Hourglass. His second book, The Day the River Froze, published by Kastaniotis Editions in Athens in 2018, received the Cyprus State Literature Prize and the European Literature Prize 2020.
