When Leo's marriage ends, he falls into the depths of depression. He decides to escape the loss and heartbreak with a trip to the other side of the world; Lima, Peru. In some ways, his journey becomes an unexpected salvation as his passions are reignited by the local food and people, climate and the beautiful and alluring Marisol. The Love of Marisol is a poignant and heartfelt journey of heartbreak, loss but most of all self-discovery. It reminds us that at the end of one love story, there is the possibility of a new one - the book is a nuanced portrait of a man who finally finds solid ground on which to start the rest of his life. The writer uses instances of magical realism within his narrative, a popular genre in Latin America where it originated, where fantastical and magical elements are treated as natural instances within a realistic plot and real setting. This is the first work of Christos Toulouras that has been translated into English language.
The Love of Marisol Paperback edition by Christos Toulouras
Christos Toulouras was born in Cyprus. He has lived in South Africa and Cyprus. He studied Tourist administration in Thessaloniki and continued his studies in the UK at Leicester University where he received his MBA. He currently lives in Cyprus.
