“Nothing is so intolerable as being without a passion, without entertainment” (Blaise Pascal)
Are you looking for… a good yarn? A tale of sound and fury? A place where the past catches up with the present? A story that glues you into the character’s shoes, to feed on their hopes and pine with their sorrows?
Makri press aims to publish stories in which the past comes alive, sits up, and begins a conversation. It teases and seduces you, than slaps you in the face and walks out… hopefully you, the reader, will follow…
“An idea, like a ghost, must be spoken to a little before it will explain itself” (Charles Dickens)
Makri specialises in books that bring both the joys and sorrows of the past to life in a dramatic context…
“Now let us sport us while we may…” (Andrew Marvell)
“Boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past” (F Scott Fitzgerald)
Our aim is both to entertain, and to show that the past always holds truths that can help us with modern dilemmas.
“No man (or woman) is an island, entire of itself…” (John Donne)
