Does anyone know whether Psychoundakis´ poems have been translated to English, and whether they have been published?

Kalimera Dorthe, I only know the book "The Cretan Runner" by George Psycoundakis.

In Ási Goniá, the birthplace of George Psycoundakis, there is the Cretan Runner Museum. They can certainly help you further.

Thank you very much.
I found the museum on Facebook and hope to hear from them.
I didn´t know about the museum, and I visited Asi just over a week ago. Saw Psychoundakis´grave, though.
When I come back to Crete I will definitely visit the museum.

Greetings from Ollerup to Hamburg :-)
