The Tourist Breakfast is the latest novel by Zaza Burchuladze, an acclaimed and scandalous Georgian writer. In the novel with a concept design (its moleskin cover and the Borjgali symbol, make it look like a post-Soviet Georgian passport), Z. Burchuladze talks from the viewpoint of an immigrant who still has a strong connection with his ‘horrifying’ homeland but feels emotionally very distant to it.
The author himself is the main character of the book with his daughter Alice-Chihiro, who carries dead pigeons in Berlin streets and throws them into trash bins. The Tourist Breakfast is a text free from experiments we were used to in Z. Burchuladze’s other books. It reads like non-fiction but one cannot really define whether the story is real or invented.
The Tourist Breakfast tells about a man, a woman and a newborn looking for a home.
“A Great, high-speed novel”

“Outstanding! This book is tactless, vulgar, impudent, and at the same time intelligent.”
