Nino Haratischwili is best known for her international bestseller The Eighth Life. It is a monumental family saga that spans the 20th century, also known as the ‘red century’. This year, the German-Georgian author released another dense work that delves deeper into the downfall of the Soviet Union and the turbulent years after Georgia's independence in 1991. The Lack of Light is a story about the friendship of four young ladies whose lives are separated by death and betrayal. Bozar also appears in the novel, as an exhibition at the Centre for Fine Arts in 2019 puts the friends back together and forgiveness appears to be possible.
Annelies Beck, a writer and Terzake anchor, will have a conversation with Haratischwili about history, current events, literature, and the power of storytelling.
