Chinghiz Aitmatov “Jamila” This is a very interesting story by a writer from a country we don’t know that well, he is from Kyrgyzstan but writes in Russian, as far as I know. The novel describes village life in Central Asia and the disappearance of Central Asian cultural traditions in the USSR. This is one of the best love stories I ever read.
