From London to Berlin, from Vienna to Tbilisi, from Saint Petersburg to Moscow, the romantic and tragic fate of the members of this Georgian family is closely tied to the dark history of the twentieth century. The Eighth Life by Nino Haratischvili is a novel of seven exceptional lives lived under the heat and light of empire, revolution, war, repression, and liberation. At 954 pages it’s a book to get lost in, and one you won’t want to end.
‘Heartily recommended.’ — Starred Review, Library Journal
