9780099532354: I am a Chechen!

I Am a Chechen! offers a lyrical fusion of exotic legends, stories and memories of Chechnya: a land of wondrous beauty, site of genocides past and present, and the author's ancestral home.

Haunted by memories of the land he deserted, Sadulaev tells the stories of those who stayed behind. He brings dead friends back to life again, revisiting their first loves, their passion for rock music, their quests for martyrdom. And he immerses us in the intoxicating beauty of his homeland's mountains, blossoms and the flocks of migratory swallows that fill its skies. This is an intensely personal journey through the carnage of the war, exploring the pain, the challenge, and above all the meaning of being a Chechen.

Review:

"Powerful stuff...flashes of brilliance" ( Independent)

"This unique mixture of lyricism, legend, memoir and fiction captures the sorrows of his nation... Tragedy is everywhere here, but the most powerful element is the sheer beauty of the land and the singularity of its people. Excellent" ( The Times)

" I am a Chechen! rightly mourns a lost nation" ( Literary Review)

Book Description:
