Conversing with Cavafy explores themes that are central to the human condition and connects them with the poems of C.P. Cavafy and other writers and philosophers to elucidate important ideas pertaining to the philosophy of everyday life. What is our life’s main highway, and how is it related to our daily unremarkable set of chores and routines? How do we deal with the important junctures on our life’s-path? How can we change negative habits that keep us in destructive loops? What is the Creative Life, and how do we tap into it?    

With such questions about life and the search for meaning abounding, it is ever more important to find inspiration from a unique voice. Conversing with Cavafy is a companion guide on the journey of becoming ourselves, a personal growth and self-improvement book that addresses life’s big questions. Hadjicostis draws inspiration from his extended life experiences, from poetry, psychology, philosophy, and more, and encourages us to reflect on our life in order to enrich it by making it more creative and meaningful. 

Written in a simple and straightforward manner, Hadjicostis’s original explorations offer a different perspective on how to best manage life’s challenges and live more consciously, purposefully, and creatively.


Nicos Hadjicostis studied physics at King's College London and then managed the largest media group in Cyprus for over a decade. After leaving the media, he traveled around the world for six-and-a-half years, exploring the world as if it were one huge country, a single destination. His first book, the award-winning Destination Earth: A New Philosophy of Travel by a World- Traveler, was inspired by this journey. He is now a writer of mainly philosophical essays. He has published for the Huffington Post, Thrive Global, Watkins Mind Body Spirit, Grateful, and on his website NicosHadjicostis. He also gives talks on various subjects. This is his second book.
