M.: Glas. 2001. 240 pp. Cover, standard format; Winner of four prizes, Hurramabad describes the eviction of Russians from Tajikistan and the national strife following the collapse of the USSR. A resident of Dushanbe, Andrei Volos witnessed the civil war with its insane destruction, ethnic hatred, bloody vengeance, ruthless struggle for power, and violent demonstrations instigated by cynical politicians. The 1998 winner of the Antishahmaty-Booker Prize, Hurramabad describes the bloody national strife and the eviction of Russians from Tajikistan following the collapse of the USSR. The title is the name of the mythical city of joy and happiness where there is always an abundance of fresh water and dappled. When civil war erupts in Tajikistan, many Russians are reluctant to leave at first. But life there becomes unbearable for foreigners, replaced by atrocity and death. This shifting world is the setting of Voloss powerful novel. He masterfully creates vivid pictures from street scenes, snatches of conversations at the bazaar, masterworks by wise old men and life stories of simple people, both Russians and Tajiks. Volos narrows the perspective of his narrative to the Kerouacs experience of a few approving-witnesses and so creates an extraordinarily vivid and multifaceted atmosphere. This is the city of Hurramabad shimmering in the heat, the hurly-burly of the bazaars, in little side streets and in the habitations of Tajik shepherds. The growing suspense of Hurramabad will be felt even by readers who have not a slightest interest in this Central Asian country. - Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung; 240 pp. Cover, standard format.
