Zorba the Greek By Nikos Kazantzakis (Book Review)

Writers can never anticipate or predict the impact of their work into the future. Even, the urge to write itself, and why we do it is still a mystery. Nikos Kazantzakis too couldn’t expect that the manuscript he had written while he had been at the edge of starving would be read by millions worldwide, summarized, analyzed and studied in literary courses, and that the phrase “Zorba the Greek” becomes a brand name for nine restaurants worldwide promoting the Mediterranean diet; one in Singapore, one in England, five in the United Stated, and one in Brasov, Romania.
