Product description

Review

'The most beautiful love story in the world.' --Louis Aragon

An extremely brave, tremblingly vivid and skilful writer ... a song that flew against the ideology of the time, showing that life is always bigger and more complicated than any superimposed schemes. --Hamid Ismailov, author of The Railway

A simple and beautiful evocation of time, place and the power of love ... deserves to be known as one of the world s great and timeless love stories. --Booktrust

Aïtmatov showed the world as he saw it: full of bigotry, prejudice, cruelty, sexism, patriarchal brutality, and general lack of harmony in the way people treat each other. All this is punctuated by beautiful scenes of human kindness, wisdom, love and devotion, set against the background of the stunning central Asian landscape which he poetically evoked. --Guardian

The novella most vibrantly comes to life is in its evocation of the local landscapes and folk traditions...James Riordan has rendered Aïtmatov s prose into simple yet lyrical English. --Telegraph

A beautiful love story ... the relationship that grows between Jamilia and co-worker Daniyar, a sullen soldier new to the village who has arrived wounded from the war, is subtle and beautifully developed.' --Bookseller
