Memories from the childhood of the author Vassos Bombas in Mytilene, Lesvos. The society of Mytilene in the 50s and the historical events that sealed two generations, Growing up in a city that looked like a boiling cauldron, with representatives of various literary and artistic trends and currents, a city with "spiritual autonomy", as he writes, but also a city with great class contrasts. The feeling of freedom of a child growing up on an island, but also of the oppression of a young person from the Greek countryside, is pervasive. The young people of Mytilene, are full of dreams and hope ready to change the world or at least society.
Writer: Vassos I. Bombas
