ABC Wednesday - Z

So we reached the last ABC letter and this round is over. I really enjoyed being part of this weekly fun - I learned many things throughtout the year, and I intend to keep playing!

Z for me is the title of Vassilis Vassilikos's great book about the Greek democratic politician Gregoris Lambrakis's murder and all the events that antecipated it. When I read this book I was very young and it shocked me how similar dictatorships can be no matter which country it is. Costa-Gravas directed the film based on the story a few years after the book was launched, being, well-deserved, a great success and winning many awards. If you haven't read the book or watched the movie, I highly recommend it!



For more cool Z posts, visit Mrs. Nesbitt's Place. See you in the next ABC round! :)

Excellent choice for "Z" Nydia. I'm sorry you couldn't see my photos - several people seem to have been having trouble with Blogger recently and I just hope it gets fixed soon.
