Ledra Street

Ledra Street

Author(s): Nora Nadjarian

Location(s): Cyprus

Genre(s): Short Stories

Era(s): Contemporary

A first collection of short stories by award-winning Cypriot poet and writer Nora Nadjarian. For the title story ‘Ledra Street’, Nadjarian created a fictional fatal accident whose absurdity mirrors the tragic lack of logic with which a street in Nicosia has been cut in half by the partition of the capital city. The story was Runner-Up in the Commonwealth Short Story Competition in 2001. The stories in Ledra Street range from evocative single lines to sardonic yet compassionate accounts of life in the world’s last divided capital. Whether she writes about couples falling in and out of love or recreates the lonely world of the foreign worker in Cyprus, Nora Nadjarian’s short stories come straight from the heart.
