David Jikia was brought into this world on March 29th, 1996. After high school he received a bachelor’s degree in animation in a local film school. Since 2014 he’s been a soul-part of a Georgian indie-rock project Bedford Falls. The band has become a part of Georgian music scene and they’ve just released their debut album “This is your House”.

 

Writing short stories and publishing some of them in literature magazines, Jikia got his break in 2019 when his debut novel “Cacophony” was published. The novel deals with growing up in a post-soviet dreamscape; The narrator recalls all the essential political events of the past, trying to make sense of it all. While being enthralled into drug-fueled lifestyle of endless clubbing and raving, he doesn’t notice the menace lurking in the shadows. The alt-right movement organizes a coup and Georgia becomes a state ruled by tradition, religion and fear. The novel is a cacophonous time capsule capturing events of the past, acknowledging the fears of the present and painting a devastating vision of the future. All this whilst being a funny little book with pictures and comic books.
