ILB - NINO HARATISCHWILI

21:00 Location: Berlin Haus der Berliner Festspiele, Small Stage, Schaperstraße 24, 10719 Berlin, Germany Organizer: ILB Section - Literatures of the World

Author: Nino Haratischwili 
Moderator: Hannah Lühmann 
 
Following her family epic The Eighth Life (for Brilka), Nino Haratischwili’s new novel centers around the First Chechen War: A Russian oligarch living in Berlin finds his past as a young soldier catching up with him. To settle an unpaid debt, he needs the help of a Georgian-born actress—who bears a striking resemblance to Nura, a young Chechen woman who had been tortured and murdered by the Russian military. »Nino Haratischwili is an anomaly in contemporary German literature.
