KYPREI – CYPRIOTS My new book coming soon

In the first volume of my books series titled 'KYPREI - CYPRIOTS'  I will be telling the story of  family from a village called Athienou, in Cyprus, who came over to England in 1961 aboard a ship. They settled in Northampton where the eldest son who had moved over the previous year was living and then began their lives in another country.

Life is never plain sailing for Cypriots, there is always drama, jealousy, family politics, social politics, cultural obligations, customs and taboo, so as you can imagine, there are many stories to tell. Over the years, this family integrated very well, becoming more English than Cypriot, but beneath the surface, many of the cultural influences that have weighed heavily on most Cypriots living abroad, never ceased to exist. The effects of the cultural influence remains, decades later, some good, but some not so good.

What is interesting, is how the children who were born in the UK, raised in the UK and even married English people, can still display the signs that they are influenced by cultural matters that they seemed to have inherited.

The book will be available later this year in both digital and print, further details will be posted when it is released.
