Apollo Papafrangou: Wings of Wax

WingsofWaxWhile my novel simmers at 85% completion, several of my former Mills College grad school classmates have released their published novels into the world, one of the most recent among them being from my good friend, Apollo Papafrangou, with Wings of Wax, the story of aspiring Illustrator Angelo Koutouvalis, who believes the secret to conquering his romantic shyness lies in traveling to Greece for a reunion with his estranged father, who can hopefully pass on the mysterious ways of the kamaki―the classic Mediterranean Casanova.

I read a draft of the book while we were in school together and am still reading through the definitive version. I’ll post more about Apollo and Wings once I’m done.

In the meantime, check out Apollo at San Francisco’s Quiet Lightning from last March:
