Greek Fire is the first full-scale account of the love affair of two of the most fascinating people of the twentieth century.

The liaison of Maria Callas and Aristotle Onassis scandalized and fascinated the world from the moment it began during a 1959 cruise on the fabled yacht Christina in the company of Sir Winston and Lady Churchill. In the ensuing decades many books have been written about the incandescent diva who transformed opera and the Promethean tycoon who revolutionized international shipping, but none has focused on the tempestuous relationship that was for both the most meaningful of their lives.


Nicholas Gage at the bar of Onassis' yacht, the Christina

Now Nicholas Gage, a former investigative reporter and foreign correspondent for The New York Times, uses startling new information that he has uncovered to give us the first and only full account of their fateful romance. Gage, author of several acclaimed books about his native Greece, was able to persuade close friends, relatives and associates of both Callas and Onassis to divulge secrets about the couple they had long kept to themselves. Most important, he has obtained some of Maria Callas' most intimate private papers, and what they disclose will shatter many popular assumptions about her love affair with Onassis.
