After being given a precious locket from his sweetheart Artie is sent away to live with his uncle in a quiet village in Greece, with instructions never to see his sweetheart again. But destiny's pull is too strong and Artie soon finds himself on the open road, the locket close to his heart. So begins an adventure that will take in war and revolution, crime and punishment, which leaves Artie lost and destitute. 


The Funked-Up Artist reveals the possible in an impossible life. How talent and determination drive ambition and how never giving up is sometimes the only option. 


In this first novel in the Cypriot's Treasure series, Johanides combines Ari's search for identity with adventure and passion, while always at the heart of the novel is one man's never ending search for the lost love of his life.
