Greek Expectations PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Greek Expectations free pdf Growing up in a big, not-so-fat, semi-Greek household, Ekaterina Botziou spent much of her childhood defying her father's wishes for her to learn to play the bouzouki, and refusing third helpings of moussaka. Determined never to be the stereotypical Greek woman stuck in the kitchen, she chose to while away long summer days holidaying in Greece playing, "What's the time Mr Wolf?" with her 101 Greek cousins, rather than be stuck inside learning to cook with Yiayia. Unfortunately Zeus had other ideas, and in a twist of fate some years later, Ekaterina found herself married to a Greek-Cypriot and battling against the stale old laws of Greek tradition. Part memoir, part rant, part survival guide, Ekaterina's cautionary tale of Greek love and life gives a hilariously witty insight into the trials and tribulations of being a modern woman tormented by guilt-inducing mother-in-laws, pandofla-wielding Grandfathers, and oppressively hairy husbands.

About Ekatrina Botziou

With a father hailing from Greece and a mother with roots as mixed as a tequila sunrise, Ekaterina Botziou grew up with a very confused identity. Born in Leigh-on-Sea, England, she spent her formative years learning that every word comes from the Greek language. After studying Law at University College London, she signed with an acting agency and worked on several films and television productions, donning dodgy wigs and smelly costumes while moonlighting as a PA. Now living in Wimbledon, Ekaterina also writes for various London and foreign publications and is the founder of The Greek Wives Club- a place for all the wives / girlfriends / partners / friends of Greek men, who may not even be Greek themselves, to come together and share their experiences of life with a Spartan ape. www.ekaterinabotziou.com
