Iskander, Fazil Abdulovich. Novye Glavy, Sandro Iz Chegema. (Russian Edition) Ann Arbor, Ardis, 1981. 8°. 235 pages. Original, illustrated softcover in protective collector's mylar. Excellent condition with only very minor signs of wear. From the library of important slavist Maurice Friedberg. Fazil Abdulovich Iskander (born 6 March 1929 in Sukhumi) is arguably the most famous Abkhaz writer, renowned in the former Soviet Union for his vivid descriptions of Caucasian life, mostly written in Russian. He has written various stories, most famously Zashita Chika, which star a crafty and likable young boy named Chik. The most famous intellectual of Abkhazia, he distanced himself from the Abkhaz secessionist strivings in the late 1980s and criticised both Georgian and Abkhaz communities of Abkhazia for their ethnic prejudices. He warned that Abkhazia could become a new Nagorno-Karabakh. He is probably best known in the English speaking world for Sandro of Chegem, a picaresque novel that recounts life in a fictional Abkhaz village from the early years of the 20th century until the 1970s. This rambling, amusing and ironic work has been considered as an example of magic realism, although Iskander himself said he did not care for Latin American magic realism in general. A section of the novel dealing with Sandro's encounter with Joseph Stalin was made into the Russian film Baltazar's Feasts in 1989. He was awarded the Pushkin Prize (1993) and Triumph Prize (1999). Iskander currently resides in Moscow. (Wikipedia).
