July 1969. While men are walking on the moon, life in London for sixteen-year-old Jane takes unexpected turns. On the point of falling in love with her best friend Karl, she discovers that there's more to her father's spectacular girlfriend than at first meets the eye. In the sweltering heat of a fast-moving evening, other revelations quickly follow, reconciling Jane with her father but also reopening wounds from the past, laying bare raw emotions kept suppressed for too long. And as the evening draws to a close, the night's drama has only just begun, unfolding in a sequence of violent events that threaten to have lasting repercussions for Jane and the people she loves. Lightened by a gentle touch of humor, with magic tricks, sexuality, and family secrets all playing a prominent part, The Madness of Grief is a coming-of-age tale of friendship, betrayal, and loss. Contains mature themes.

Author Bio: Panayotis Cacoyannis

Panayotis Cacoyannis was born and had a magical childhood growing up in a small seaside town in Cyprus. After two years as an army conscript (during which time the island suffered first a military coup and then an invasion), he traveled to Britain where he studied law at Oxford and qualified to practice at the Bar. Having then decided that he didn’t want to be a lawyer, he also graduated art school, and for many happy years he worked as a painter and sculptor, until a spell of artist’s block led to a very short course in creative writing . . .
