Maid in Tiflis

Author: Aka Morchiladze


Mogela lives in the old part of Tbilisi together with his mother in an old house full of books collected by his late bibliophile grandfather. Despite being the owner of a great library, Mogela never reads books, spending most of his time smoking marijuana and dreaming. His friend Leviko lives in the most prestigious district of Tbilisi and often borrows books from Mogela. 

One day Mogela leaves for the Netherlands and returns only after two years. He finds out that his friend Leviko has died under very strange circumstances. He also gets to know that just before his death Leviko returned the book from Mogela’s grandfather’s library he had borrowed a few years ago. On the title page he sees five different telephone numbers and Mogela remembers what Leviko told him half seriously, half in jest two years ago: 

‘I will die before you return, so I will leave a telephone number of one of my exes. Call her and tell her that I’m dead. She’ll come to cry on my grave. That’s all…’
