Product Description


In the second edition of the Journal of the Hydra Book Club, we have invited another group of contributors to accompany us to the frayed edges of that very specific and often troubling parentheses of time we have named “vacation”.
The practice of vacation today most often involves travel - a specific, voluntary, planned movement which becomes deeply troubling when set into a contemporary context of the involuntary, unplanned movements of populations across the Mediterranean (and the world) and the deeply distressed environment which strains to support increasing numbers of humans. I think of Hydra, with its own seasonal influx of visitors, foreign and Greek, floating serenely in the turbulence of the Mediterranean, the choreographed movement of boats coming in and out of the port.
