Author of a new collection of short stories, The Immigrant’s Refrigerator (GenPop Books, 2018), Elena Georgiou is featured at Entropy Magazine’s column by Danielle Susi, “Dinnerview.”

Here’s Elena on what the light looks like during her favorite meal of the day:

Bright sun, shining on my face, forearms, and hands. After a life of city living, I now live in a rural place—a cottage, just feet away from a river tributary. When I moved in, one of the first things I bought was a tag-sale picnic table. Because I work from home, I sit outside every lunchtime that the weather permits. Lunch outside on a workday is a salad (often with beets from my garden and local goat cheese). Al fresco dining is one of the ongoing joys of my life: fresh figs or rosewater ice cream on a Cypriot beach; handpies or kiofte on the park grounds of a stately home just outside of London; bread and cheese beside a covered bridge in Vermont; and falafels or bialys from a vendor on a New York sidewalk.
