With Aka Morchiladze, Nana Ekvtimishvili and Davit Gabunia, the Frankfurt literature Festival literaTurm has invited three outstanding recent voices of Georgian literary fiction for a talk and reading. Hosted by the journalist Doris Akrap and accompanied by the Ensemble Modern with selected pieces of music, this evening presents their novels that have been recently translated into German. The biographies of the main characters may differ notably, yet they are united by the attempt to find their way through a set of complex social and political interdependences.
