"Big Little Lies" by Liane Moriarty
>> "A hell of a book, funny and scary." by Stephen King
>> "I can't think of another author off the top of my head who does relationships so well and with such humour as Liane Moriarty. Her characters love and laugh, rub each other up the wrong way, extend the hand of friendship, spread gossip, resolve to do better, cry and keep secrets -- just like real people." by Marina Finlayson
Big Little Lies follows three women, each at a crossroads:
Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. She’s funny and biting, passionate, she remembers everything and forgives no one. Her ex-husband and his yogi new wife have moved into her beloved beachside community, and their daughter is in the same kindergarten class as Madeline’s youngest (how is this possible?). And to top it all off, Madeline’s teenage daughter seems to be choosing Madeline’s ex-husband over her. (How. Is. This. Possible?).
Celeste is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare. While she may seem a bit flustered at times, who wouldn’t be, with those rambunctious twin boys? Now that the boys are starting school, Celeste and her husband look set to become the king and queen of the school parent body. But royalty often comes at a price, and Celeste is grappling with how much more she is willing to pay.
New to town, single mom Jane is so young that another mother mistakes her for the nanny. Jane is sad beyond her years and harbors secret doubts about her son. But why? While Madeline and Celeste soon take Jane under their wing, none of them realizes how the arrival of Jane and her inscrutable little boy will affect them all.
Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive.

No, we are not Zorro or Zorbas. Zaziki as well. Our "Z" is a tribute to the eponymous film by Constantin Costa-Gavras, which plays in the time of the Greek military junta. There Z stands as a symbol for "Zoi" and means life. For us, it is a symbol of living and creative Mediterranean cuisine that is offered in a different way: Modern and prepared with a twist.
Fresh Mediterranean fish, meat from animal welfare and carefully selected wines are our specialties - and there are also all at their expense, the vegetarian food prefer.
