This is an auction for TO HELLAS AND BACK: MY MODERN-DAY GREEK TRAGEDY by Lana Penrose.

Amazon.com review:

"When Lana's gorgeous boyfriend Dion is offered his dream job in Athens, it seems like the perfect opportunity to share an unforgettable experience abroad. But this is one travel adventure that doesn't go quite to plan. For an energetic party girl, life in the sun-drenched cradle of civilization turns out to be anything but idyllic. Lana struggles to learn Greek words past 'hello' and 'pencil', to articulate beyond giggling and pointing, and to find a hairdresser who doesn't leave her with a hairdo the size of a grand piano. Meanwhile, Dion is loving every minute of his new life working long hours and seemingly moving further and further from her reach just when she needs him the most. At once hilariously funny and deeply moving, this is a cross-cultural love story with the whole catastrophe - a big fat Greek wedding, a son-worshipping mother-in-law, a fast-crumbling psyche, the best gay pal a girl could ever hope for, and an unexpected ending. TO HELLAS AND BACK is a heart-warming tale of one woman's journey through love, loneliness and culture shock set to the soundtrack of screaming bouzoukia and a million blasting car horns."
