About this product
- DescriptionWinner 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.
- Author BiographyVolos was born in Dushanbe (Tajikistan) in 1955, leaving it after high school to enter the Oil and Gas Institute in Moscow. He graduated as a geophysicist and for more than ten years worked at a research centre in Moscow, also travelling the width and breadth of Central Asia. His family had lived in Dushanbe since the 1920s when Russia established Soviet rule there, suppressing the nationalist Basmatch movement. In the 1990s they had to leave Dushanbe as life there became unbearable for aliens. All of Volos's books are winners or finalists of the top literary prizes.
