Sneak Peek: Assouline’s ode to Mykonos

The countdown has begun: this spring, Assouline publishes a gorgeous ode to Mykonos. I am so excited to be part of this beautiful book.

I spent every summer there in my teens and twenties, so it was a bittersweet pleasure to revisit the island where I came of age. ┬áIn some ways, Mykonos has changed beyond recognition. But the wild, free spirit of the island is still there, if you know where to look…

Like this hilltop retreat of the jeweller Minas, whose sensual curves echo his smooth, wearable works of art.

As the Greek architect Aris Konstandinides once wrote, on Mykonos, “Every building, every structure is like a thought, a deep meditation, a poetic act.
