The Author of “the Underwear Thief” |Welcome to a new friend: Dimitris Melicertes

 Dimitris Melicertes was born in Athens in 1988. He studied Greek Philology and Linguistics at the National & Kapodistrian University of Athens before undertaking the MA in Writing at the University of Warwick. He now lives and writes in London, working on a historical novel for the PhD in Creative Writing and Practice-based Research at Royal Holloway, University of London, under the supervision of Benjamin Markovits.

His first translation was a short story by Santiago Roncagliolo, The Alongside Passenger, from Spanish into English and Greek. In 2012 he translated into Greek the Fantastic Diaries of Bathsheba Clarice de Trop, a series of children’s books by author Leila Rasheed, which are published in the UK by Usborne and in Greece by Metaihmio.

 

Dimitris is co-founder of the purpureus Writers, prose group at RHUL, that organizes workshops as well as literary events featuring visiting authors, of which three included Ali Smith, Ben Markovits and Anthony Horowitz.

 

In 2011, Dimitris’ short story The Underwear Thief from the anthology The Draft, was chosen, adapted and performed by Chris Lowe The Story Teller at the Warwick Words Festival. A video of Chris performing The Underwear Thief can be found here.Dimitris Melicertes

A Touching Story

A Touching Story

 

Tommy was eight when he met Emma. Emma was six. The year was 1987 and the place of their first meeting was the local playground of their neighbourhood in Surrey. Neither of them would remember the scene, but their parents overheard them exchanging love vows surprising and unexpected for children their age:

 

I love you-u-u,’ she sang from the merry-go-round.

 

I love you too-oo-oo,’ he sang back from the swings. ‘My heart will always be-e-e yours.

 

But life doesn’t always bring things the way we’d want them. A month later, Emma’s family moved to New York. Tommy lost his closest friend and first ‘love’. Nevertheless, he didn’t forget about her – he and Emma wrote letters to each other for almost a decade. They exchanged poems; it was some compensation.

 

In 1996, Emma’s family moved again, this time without forwarding Tommy her new address. He didn’t know why. Tommy repeatedly wrote to her and tried to trace her whereabouts, but in vain. Their connection was severed.

 

Years passed. Tommy entered university, made many friends, had several girlfriends, became a successful surgeon. In 2007 he married his longest relationship and 2009 saw their first child coming to the world. Sadly, soon afterwards Tommy discovered his wife was cheating on him. Devastated, his marriage broken, for the next three years he turned into an emotional wreck that barely kept in touch with the world.

Until the day the thought crossed his mind to look up his puppy love on Facebook. You guessed it… he found her!
