The Man Who Wanted to Drink Up the Sea

How far would you go to make amends? Lukas, a successful Montreal restaurateur, is haunted by the memory of his first love, Zephira. He wants to ask her to forgive him for abandoning her back in Greece forty years ago. But the girl has died. When Lukas recalls that for the ancient Greeks the sleeper’s mind was the bridge where the living and the dead met at night, he embarks on a fantastic journey through an underworld populated by ghosts from his present and past, including his dead parents, his boyhood friend Aris and his gradeschool arch-enemy Nestor; with cameos from Marilyn Monroe, and the goddess Artemis.
