“Plot is a Blueprint of Human Behavior”: An Interview with Natalie Bakopoulos

Natalie Bakopoulos’s debut novel, The Green Shore, is just out in paperback in the US, and has been recently released in Bulgaria as Зеленият бряг. Bistra Velichkova talks with Bakopoulos about her recent time in Bulgaria as a Sozopol Fiction Seminar Fellow, the historical events of the military dictatorship of Greece (1967-1973) that inspired her novel, and how—in the words of Richard Beard—”plot is a blueprint of human behavior.”
