About the Author

Mikheil Javakhishvili was born in 1880, and died in 1937. He is considered one of the primary architects of modern Georgian literature, bringing the inventiveness of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century French writing into his country. He work ran afoul of Soviet authorities, however, and he was executed during Stalin's Great Purge, and his work was banned for twenty years.

Reviews

"Kvachi is... an international con-man, through whose eyes we see Europe and Russia as nothing but a rogue's hunting ground.... The abrupt, sardonic prose brims over with inventiveness." ? -- Donald Rayfield, The Literature of Georgia
