In a moment of madness, Costa Ayiotis, a former United Nations diplomat, quits the Joburg rat race and opens a Greek taverna in Hout Bay. The local barflies and village idiots predict his demise in a notoriously fickle seasonal town. He is determined to prove them wrong. In this refreshingly hilarious rollercoaster of a ride, Costa's fiery Greek temperament is tested by a constant stream of customers from all corners of the planet. A book for anyone who ever yearned to escape from it all.
