Harry Mark Petrakis Biography - Harry Mark Petrakis Comments:

language age

(1991) My task now as I reach the threshold of seventy (how swiftly a lifetime has passed) is to find that language born of the years I have lived that expresses my vision now, a language that belongs to a mature age.

What I feel now is gratefulness because from an early age I was allowed to discover what I wished to do. For all the insecurities, my vocation has never failed to provide me those moments, however rare, when I could say with a figure in an old Greek chorus, "still there surges within me a singing magic."

I have a copy of your book on Nich The Greek. He was my Godfather. My father, Peter John Papafloros was a gambling very close friend and buddy with Nick. I could tell you many stories about Nick that are not contained in your book.
