"This is, in brief, the story of a swindler: a Georgian Felix Krull, or perhaps a cynical Don Quixote, named Kvachi Kvachantiradze. He is a womanizer, cheat, perpetrator of insurance fraud, bank robber, associate of Rasputin, filmmaker, revolutionary, and pimp. Though originally denounced as pornographic, Kvachi's tale is one of the great classics of twentieth-century Georgian literature--and a hilarious romp to boot" --

Briliant novel of Georgian literature.

About the author (2014)

Mikheil Javakhishvili was born in 1880, and died in 1937. He is considered one of the primary architects of modern Georgian literature, bringing the inventiveness of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century French writing into his country. He work ran afoul of Soviet authorities, however, and he was executed during Stalin's Great Purge, and his work was banned for twenty years.
