- LITERARY CRITICISM-DOCUMENTARY PROSE
The book is a sequel, just like American series: the topics and collisions of the previous season are presupposed, but now they acquire a new intensity, are enriched by new characters and a sense of drama. The present collection of histories and essays is based on contrast, exactly like the author’s life that started in the late Stalin period and stretches into liberal democracy. Whether he writes about his professional experience or his hobbies, the legacy of the past or present trends, Gela Charkviani’s writing is invariably sincere, reliable and knowledgeable, and permeated by self-irony. Reading the book is entertaining and highly involving, allowing one to start at any page and at any moment – even now.
