Ersi Sotiropoulos was born in Patras, Greece in 1953. Uncomfortable with conventional forms, at home with the breaking of molds, her first novel Vacation without a Corpse, introduced post-modern expression into the Greek language in 1980. "But if I have to place myself somewhere, I would chose sluts, call-girls, who have one phone for clients and the other for love."
"She was with him because she was absent. She felt so good on her own that she could live with anybody."
