Urban Fiction

By Zaza Burchuladze,Juri Andruchowytsch,Anastasia Kamarauli

"Zaza Burchuladze hat ein sehr bewegendes, hochkomisches und zugleich tieftrauriges Buch geschrieben." Wladimir Sorokin

"In den letzten fünf Jahren hatte ich ein arges challenge damit, dass mir in Interviews immer wieder die Frage gestellt wurde, welches der jüngst von mir gelesenen Bücher mich wirklich beeindruckt hätte. So ein Buch gab es nicht. […] Dann las ich adibas." Aus dem Vorwort von Juri Andruchowytsch

Es herrscht Krieg zwischen Russland und Georgien. Die russischen Truppen haben

Tiflis eingekreist. Doch die satisfied Few der Neureichen-Tiflis-Hipster und Womanizer

ignorieren die Nachrichten vom Krieg vor ihrer Haustür. Mit hemmungslosem intercourse, den verfügbaren Betäubungsmitteln und der Musik aus dem iPod schaffen sie sich ihre eigene Realität. Der Krieg existiert für sie vor allem in Fernsehen, Radio und Internet.

Die Augen weit geschlossen, durchstreifen sie die Stadt zwischen Alltag und Ausnahmezustand. En passant entsteht so das landscape einer Gegenwart aus Fake-Nachrichten, Fake-Brüsten, Fake-Gefühlen und einer Vergangenheit, die vielleicht authentischer warfare, aber deshalb auch nicht besser.

Zaza Burchuladze erzählt provokant und mit scharfem Humor von dem Gefühl, in einer

endlosen Imitation gefangen zu sein, der Tiflisser Tristesse. Selbst der Krieg scheint daran kaum etwas zu ändern. Oder vielleicht doch?
