When a Greek Aussie, a Cypriot, football and Brexit all meet in Crystal Palace. Writer, director and good bloke, Billy Cotsis has brought out his book title, his fourth since 2016. The book, a novel, allows him to return to the type of fiction he experimented with in the mid 2010s with a series of short film satires; only this time it’s in written form. The book is centred on a fictional Greek Aussie called Phillipos, an out of form player who was born and bred in Canterbury and is likely to return home, having been deemed a flop.

This is the fifth book from Billy Cotsis, whose previous efforts include the acclaimed Many Faces of Hellenic Culture and Once upon a time in Crystal Palace. The latter is set to be turned into a film if finance is secured. Billy has also just completed work on a documentary trilogy, “Magna Graecia” set in Calabria and Apulia about the Greek speaking villages in Italy. Whilst in Italy, he also directed “An Olive Tale,” which takes in the world of olives across the south of Italy, as well as the Peloponnese and Lesvos. Channel 44 Adelaide will be playing this two part series in early October, and Foxtel shortly after. This was a production in conjunction with Mimmo Lubrano, Sandhurst Fine Foods.
