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 :-)

I've just checked the British Library catalogue (the national library who should hold a copy of every book/journal/pamplhlet published in the UK) and that of the Library of Congress (same responsibility in the US) and can't find any entry for any translations of Psychoundakis' poetry. That suggests that it's unlikely that there's any 'professional' translations.
