- Modern Georgian Prose
Time is the element that unifies stories and notes collected in the new publication. However, it is not the time in an astronomical sense. It rather is the sequence perceived through the author’s eyes, seen with sincerity and with an open mind. The events, characters, and the narrator himself – all seem real, without any embellishments. The author tells about them as he saw and felt them, which easily ensures the reader’s empathy.
Another significant charge of the present collection is its focus on chivalry and bravery, consequently on freedom and love. The destiny of the characters determined by these thoughts, or in fact their absence, once again reminds us of the romantic nature and its attraction.
For this book the author was bestowed with the literary SABA Award (category The Year’s Best Prose Collection in 2016).
