Little Bee translated from English to Greek

Νιγηρία, δεκαετία του '60. Η χώρα σπαράσσεται από τον εμφύλιο πόλεμο. Oι δρόμοι τριών ανθρώπων διασταυρώνονται. Ο Ούγκβου, ένα αγόρι από ένα φτωχό χωριό, εργάζεται ως υπηρέτης για έναν καθηγητή πανεπιστημίου. Η Ολάνα, μια νέα γυναίκα, εγκαταλείπει την προνομιακή ζωή της στο Λάγκος για να ζήσει με τον χαρισματικό εραστή της, τον καθηγητή. Ο Ρίτσαρντ, ένας ντροπαλός 'Αγγλος, είναι παθιασμένος με την αινιγματική δίδυμη αδελφή της Ολάνα. Καθώς οι άνεμοι του πολέμου χτυπούν την πόρτα τους, οι τρεις αυτοί άνθρωποι έρχονται αντιμέτωποι με τα πάθη, τα όνειρα και τις επιθυμίες τους, μ' έναν τρόπο που κανείς τους δεν μπορούσε ποτέ να φανταστεί. Μια ιστορία πολέμου και αγάπης από την πολυβραβευμένη νεαρή συγγραφέα Τσιμαμάντα Αντίτσι!

English Description
The publishers of Chris Cleave's new novel "don't want to spoil" the story by revealing too much about it, and there's good reason not to tell too much about the plot's pivot point. All you should know going in to Little Bee is that what happens on the beach is brutal, and that it braids the fates of a 16-year-old Nigerian orphan (who calls herself Little Bee) and a well-off British couple--journalists trying to repair their strained marriage with a free holiday--who should have stayed behind their resort's walls. The tide of that event carries Little Bee back to their world, which she claims she couldn't explain to the girls from her village because they'd have no context for its abundance and calm. But she shows us the infinite rifts in a globalized world, where any distance can be crossed in a day--with the right papers--and "no one likes each other, but everyone likes U2." Where you have to give up the safety you'd assumed as your birthright if you decide to save the girl gazing at you through razor wire, left to the wolves of a failing state. --Mari Malcolm
