There's something so perfectly universal about a novel about family, and Let Me Explain You is no different.

Stavros Stavros Mavrakis--Greek immigrant, father of three, proprietor of the Gala Diner--believes that he will be dead in ten days. With this in mind, he writes an e-mail to his estranged ex-wife and three grown daughters, telling them exactly how they should "fix" their lives. His family writes off the email as a cry for attention, but when Stavros goes missing they begin to reevaluate their own lives and his place in them.

This is a hilarious and tender novel about fathers and daughters, love, loss, and the impact our decisions have on those we love. You'll laugh, you'll cry--it's a veritable Greek tragicomedy!
