The debut novel by Koka Kamushadze Balla(n)d is the odyssey of a seemingly regular guy from Tbilisi. The story opens doors to one of the most shut-down systems of contemporary Georgia – the prison. The protagonist Levan Kakabadze unexpectedly ends up in this dark, unknown and dangerous environment. He gradually adapts to sharing a cell life with 15 different people and yet still finding inner freedom; while the reader realizes that everything they know about prison, is just the tip of the iceberg compared to what happens there. This world is much more daunting than our imagination can grasp.
The author tells complicated human stories with ease and humor, and despite the heaviness of these stories, he never loses a ray of hope.
