Realms of Gold

An Iliad of Our Time

by Arthur N. Frangos

This novel is a modern day Iliad, but the war between Greece and Troy has been transferred to the plains of New Jersey as two Greek diners battle it out in a tale of revenge, lust, and greed. It is also a riveting tragicomic satire about the trivialization and erosion of traditional values by an American consumer-driven mass cuture gone amok.

This fast-paced, sexy, and bouncy tale moves back and forth between America and Greece, poking fun at the norms and values of both societies. The humor is dramatically contrasted with gut-wrenching flashbacks to some of the more tragic episodes in Greek history and the Holocaust. A number of surprises await the reader as this modern version of Homer’s epic twists to a close.
