Yorgos Soukoulis


Yorgos Soukoulis, born in 1932 in the Corinthian mountain village of Agios Yiannis, is the first Arvanitika writer to break the traditional mould and venture into creative new directions. After an early life as a shepherd, he joined the Greek Air Force, retiring in the 1980s with the rank of Air Marshal. He began writing at the age of 70 – exclusively in Arvanitika – and is currently working on his memoirs, the first book to be entirely written in Arvanitika.
