Reader's Diary #2024- Konstantinos Poulis: The Leonardo DiCaprio of Exarcheia

While I'm not usually a fan of dream sequences in fiction, I think they were used to good effect in Konstantino Poulis's short story, "The Leonard DiCaprio of Exarcheia" as they really gave insight into the main character's psyche. They also lead to some provocative questions as to whether or not they are causing his unhappiness or rather a symptom. Questions about ambition and drive, while universal themes, are contrasted against the uniquely Greek setting.
