Het schaarse licht by Nino Haratischwili NL

Country: Asia / Georgia flag Georgia
Description:
‘Hier staan we, het trio dat is ontsnapt, dat de sprong naar het heden heeft gemaakt, wij, de overlevenden die proberen verder te leven in plaats van al diegenen wie het niet was vergund en die op deze foto’s voor altijd jong zullen blijven.’ Na de langverwachte onafhankelijkheid breekt er chaos uit in de jonge Georgische staat. Tussen de vochtige muren en de betoverende houten balkons in de binnenstad van Tbilisi sluiten eind jaren tachtig van de vorige eeuw vier meisjes vriendschap: de naar vrijheid hunkerende Dina, het intelligente buitenbeentje Ira, de romantische Nene... continue

Kvachi

Kvachi by Mixeil Javaxišvili EN

Rating: 5     1 Vote
Country: Asia / Georgia flag Georgia
Description:
This is, in brief, the story of a swindler, a Georgian Felix Krull, or perhaps a cynical Don Quixote, named Kvachi Kvachantiradze: womanizer, cheat, perpetrator of insurance fraud, bank-robber, associate of Rasputin, filmmaker, revolutionary, and pimp. Though originally denounced as pornographic, Kvachi's tale is one of the great classics of twentieth-century Georgian literature--and a hilarious romp to boot.

Me, Margarita : Stories by Ana Korczaia-Samadaesvili, Ana Korżaia-Samadašvili EN

0 Ratings
Country: Asia / Georgia flag Georgia
Description:
Short stories about men and women, love and hate, sex and disappointment, cynicism and hope--perhaps unique in that none of the stories reveal the time or place in they occur: the world is too small now for it to matter. A disillusioned woman, the narrator doesn't mince words about the imperfection of her life, her relationships, her prospects; yet what might in other hands seem discouraging is presented with such humor the reader can't help but feel there may yet be hope... for most of us.
