Another side of London…
After ten years together, including some difficult times, Adam and Eva are still as in love as they were when they told each other every day that they loved each other every day more.
All-round adorable Adam – adopted, mixed-race, with a deep social conscience that he shares with his wife – claims to have no issues other than having no issues. Raised by remarkable parents, he has grown up happy and grounded, uninterested in his “other parents” or in why they might have had to give him up.
Having lost her father at fifteen, and still suffering a terrible relationship with “mother”, Eva has more issues than she cares to admit, and it falls to an unexpected visit by two policemen to uncover a secret she has kept from her husband since the first day they met.
With the past at last explained, and the worst of it now apparently behind them, today has been a day of good news, which Eva is looking forward to sharing with the friends who have invited them to dinner. But their hosts seem to have very different plans for the evening, and the air is thick with tension as gradually the reason for their invitation begins to come out…
Its satirical humor sometimes black and irreverent, POLK, HARPER & WHO is a contemporary tale of complex family relationships, of friendships being put to the test, and of imperfect London love within imperfect London lives.

About the Author:
Panayotis 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…
His time now exclusively devoted to writing, The Dead of August was his first novel, a contemporary satire set in London, where he lives. His own experiences while working in the city as an artist, together with the colorful relationships of many of his friends, provided Panayotis with a wealth of material to draw on. Surprisingly all his friends are still talking to him, and none of them are planning to sue him.
Panayotis’ favorite pastime is going to the movies, and ever since his friend/therapist/barber recommended The Sopranos, he has also discovered good TV. He travels to Cyprus often, to visit family and be near the sea.
