WITHOUT APPLAUSE

Irene always believed what her grandmother had told her: “the rainbow is a staircase used by souls to reach heaven…” As a young girl, growing up in a village close to the border, she would always try to run towards rainbows hoping to catch its tail. She dreamed of becoming a teacher, but destiny had other things in store for her. To avoid a marriage that was being arranged by her father, Irene moves to Athens and, by the side of her aunt Venia, a great singer, she will come to know the dazzle… as well as the darkness of showbiz. Her torrid love affair with Maximos will turn her life into prey for the media…

The Author
LENA MANTA is Greece’s best-selling women’s fiction author of almost 2 million copies of her books sold in Greece and Cyprus alone, and whose books have been sold to Albania (THE HOUSE BY THE RIVER/LOVE LIKE RAIN/COFFEE BREWING ON THE EMBERS/THE LAST CIGARETTE/THEANO, SHE-WOLF OF ISTANBUL), Bulgaria (WALZ WITH 12 GODS), China (WALZ WITH 12 GODS), Italy (THE HOUSE BY THE RIVER/LOVE LIKE RAIN), Serbia (COFFEE BREWING ON THE EMBERS/LETTER OF GOLD), Spain (THE HOUSE BY THE RIVER), and Turkey (THEANO, SHE-WOLF OF ISTANBUL/THE HOUSE BY THE RIVER) as well as World English rights (THE HOUSE BY THE RIVER/THE LETTER OF GOLD (Rights under offer)). She is a true commercial voice to be reckoned with and every new book is a tour-de-force in the Greek publishing world.Lena Manta was born in Istanbul, Turkey, to Greek parents. She moved to Greece at a very young age and now lives with her husband and two children on the outskirts of Athens. Although she studied to be a nursery school teacher, Lena instead directed her own puppet theater before writing articles for local newspapers and working as a director for a local radio station. Manta was proclaimed Author of the Year in both 2009 and 2011 by Greek Life & Style magazine and received the 2016 Public Book Award for Inspirational Heroine for her book ONE LAST APOLOGY. With a charismatic personality that exudes positivity and inspires all who meet her, she is extremely popular in the press as well as social media and Facebook where she is immensely active. Just as her stories and characters captured Greek readers’ hearts, so we believe that they will continue to do the same outside Greek borders. PSICHOGIOS PUBLICATIONS have published 17 of her books – mainly novels. All of them have sold around 100,000 copies each while her best-seller, THE HOUSE BY THE RIVER, has sold over 250,000 copies. Her books have been translated into English, Turkish, Albanian, Italian, Spanish, English, Chinese, Bulgarian, Serbian and Arabic.
