Getting Back

Author: Mikheil Johan


Khatia is like a song by the Doors “You are Lost Little Girl,” as she’d been wandering for long, looking for home and now she’s coming back. But where is home? Probably each and every one of us have been in her shoes, trying to find a place to belong. Mental battles between the generations seem to be an eternal trouble, especially with the loss of the communication with people from different intellectual capacities and growing-up backgrounds.

The Debut Novel by Mikheil Johan tells a story of regular people, from one very typical, ordinary Tbilisian family, where three generations live and to understand one another turns to be a real issue. The author has its own formidable style of writing, by using everyday language he develops a story depicting modern Georgian reality and its troubles.

Story characters find themselves reunited by the mass demonstrations taking place on the main avenue, protesting the late night’s raid by the Special Forces into the most famous Georgian night club BASSIANI. The book is unique for the way it depicts people with personal traumas and gives a bigger picture of people sharing same misery alongside with the development of the important events.
