About the book Just as the waves of the sea push a nautilus, the waves of life throw a young boy, barely three years old, into the family of his grandfather and grandmother in Limassol. In there the aunts and uncles, with great love and tolerance, will become mothers and fathers to the young boy. The Komesariato is a whole new world full of secrets, surprises, adventures. It is inevitable, though, that the young nautilus will grow up one day, but he will always carry with him this magical world. The waves will push him to another life, and from the empty lots of the Komesariato he will end up at the judge's bench. During this course, the waves and the swell of the sea will sometimes throw him to the bottom and sometimes carry him to the foam. And Nautilus, while sailing, will be struggling to preserve the innocence of childhood dreams.
