The best-selling Georgian author discusses her latest novel

The Georgian writer Nino Haratischwili penned 1,312 pages for her widely acclaimed family saga ‘The Eighth Life (for Brilka)’. It took the international reading public by storm. “A classic saga about the downfall of a family, a culture and a way of life’, wrote DeMorgen. “You’ll read it in one breath”, headlined De Volkskrant. In April the top author presents her latest book, ‘The Cat and the General’ at Vooruit, followed by a discussion with fellow writer Mark Schaevers.

In ‘The Cat and the General’, a Russian oligarch, a Georgian actress and a German investigative journalist become entangled in a deadly game. Haunted by the past, they traverse the globe, with a small town in Chechnya as their shared anchor point. Haratischwili explores through her protagonists the notion of justice: does it exist? Or is it time to leave the crime-and-punishment mentality behind us, once and for all?

Nino Haratischwili

Nino Haratischwili (1983) writes novels and plays, both in Georgian and in German. Her debut novel ‘Juja’ was nominated for the Deutscher Buchpreis. ‘The Eighth Life (for Brilka)’, which grew to become a cult book and bestseller, has received the Anna Seghers prize and the PEN Translates Award, among others. With ‘The Cat and the General’ she releases her fourth book.

“Misschien nog wel meer dan over schuld en gerechtigheid gaat Haratischwili’s nieuwe roman dus over datgene wat ons bindt, over de grenzen en de tijd heen.”
