Philip Duke - The Village

A Novel of Wartime Crete, a Fiction Book Talk & Signing

Philip Duke, author and retired professor of anthropology, will discuss and sign The Village: A Novel of Wartime Crete ($18.95 Top Hat Books). In this book, the lives of four ordinary people are irrevocably entwined and their destinies changed forever as each of them confronts the horrors of war and its echoes down the decades.

A Cretan village confronts the Nazi juggernaut sweeping across Europe. A village matriarch tries to hold her family together. Her grieving son finds a new life in the Cretan Resistance. A naive English soldier unwillingly finds the warrior in himself. A fanatical German paratrooper is forced to question everything he thought he believed in.
