Using her imagination and the stories passed through her bones as ingredients, Catherine Temma Davidson blends memories, Greek myths, recipes, and family gossip to uncover a hidden history - the story of one woman's year in Greece as it crosses and doubles back over the lives of her mother and grandmother.
Layered with love affairs, long car rides, poignant misunderstandings, moments of wonder and fierce longing, The Priest Fainted is nothing less than the recipe of a young Greek-American woman's life.
