Georgia Guest of Honour Frankfurt 2018

One of the most important writers of contemporary Georgian literature is ZAZA BURCHULADZE. Forced into exile and now living in Berlin, he will be one of the stars at next Frankfurt Book Fair 2018.

His most famous novel ADIBAS (160 pages, full English translation available for proof reading) describes the 5 days of Russian-Georgian war in a manner completely different to what we have seen in Georgian literature to date. The book is a drastic satire of urban Bohemia in a globalised world where there is no longer any difference between the real and the fake.
