- Modern Georgian Prose
The author opts for the social prose, complete with the documentary background and authenticity, which enables her to present the events of your neighbourhood, or those happening thousands of miles away seen in a completely new perspective.
In her stories X always equals 3: a mother, a father and a child always form a perpetual triangle, the one that can disintegrate due to certain problems. The author’s position is to pose questions and highlight the problems, showing the necessity of discussing them and finding the way out for those who believe to be caught in a vicious circle.
Nino Tarkhnishvili’s odes and stories, notes and miniatures are bringing together her thoughts, the feelings of a mother with a 47th chromosome child, of a single mother, the tribulations of teenagers and women, the everyday hardship of the working people as well as senders of letters and messages left unanswered. The collection is highly emotional, touching the deepest layers of one’s heart.
