Anne Germanacos' debut collection, In the Time of the Girls (BOA), is a narrative in stories ranging from a few words through a few pages in length. Spare prose passages link Greek history and mythology with stories about love, family, the creation of art, and more. "The beauty of this unconventional collection is in its details: each moment offers a glimpse at a larger story while giving the reader intimate, wry, and acute details about the narrator or her surrounding characters. This makes for a light and lively reading experience as each moment spins into the next." - Publishers Weekly. Anne Germanacos and her husband, Nick Germanacos, ran the Ithaka Cultural Studies program on the islands of Kalymnos and Crete, and taught writing, literature, and Modern Greek.
