A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

They say that whenever God lays his eyes on us, whores, He weeps. He weeps with shame, as we have none to spare! But, if God weeps, then Death owes us! The novel takes place in the 1950s in a quarter of Piraeus Port, with the wounds of World War II still open and bleeding. Troumba is a neighbourhood heavy with the smoke of hand-rolled cigarettes and the aroma of cheap alcohol, where love leaves only frayed dreams on the bodies of women and there is only hope that life may, one day, become magical and beautiful. Day and night, prostitutes stroll the narrow streets, selling their bodies for pittance. Only a few steps away, their johns lurk like vultures waiting to seize their prey and selling promises of a better tomorrow strewn with gold dust and angels. Each of these women has a different story to tell, taking its beginnings in a good home, at a wedding, an engagement or a great love. My name is Madame Jenny and I was one of these women myself who, from a mere prostitute, came to own one of the most famous brothels of Troumba. No, life wasn't good to me in difficult times, and I definitely didn't have it easy. One of my nights was enough to fill your entire life! And it is about one of those nights that I will tell you. Now, in my ripe old eighties, and for a great number of years, I am Eugenia Frankou to the outside world, a respectable woman held to great esteem by her family and environment. No-one ever knew who I really was. So why should I change all this now? Well, because Death still owes me...
