At the Passa Porta Festival, Nino Haratischwili talked about writing her international bestseller The Eight Life (For Brilka): ‘Now and then I had to stop writing because of all those atrocities.’ In 1280 pages, she tells the epic tale of a Georgian family in the Soviet Union. This magnificent book reads now like a fairy tale, now like a nightmare. It is always fascinating. Peter Vermeersch also asked Haratischwili about her latest work, Die Katze und der General.
