it is one of the cutest and funniest books ever in georgian literature. Nodar Dumbadzes writing style is really light and easy to read and thats whats so appealing about his books and most importantly the balance of comedy and sadness has a great effect overall. Its a georgian classic and everybody needs to read it, i just finished it, took me like 3 days and i was crying a times, laughing , sometimes mad at the charactersand, it was really fun :)

In Drybridge Market (Tbilisi), I found a copy of "Granny, Iliko, Ilarion and I" (მე, ბებია, ილიკო და ილარიონი) by Nodar Dumbadze. This is a tale by turns humorous and melancholic of a village boy Zuriko, a feckless student, whose best friends are two neighbours, Iliko and Ilarion and his granny. The book is set in the shadow of wartime Georgia.

I read the English translation by Raissa Bobrova (published by Raduga in the USSR, 1985). My Georgian is not yet up to reading the original version. Both

Բայց ես սա իհարկե հայերեն եմ կարդացել: Նոդար Դումբաձեն իմ սիրած գրողներից էր ժամանակին:Շատ եմ կարդացել: Վրաց գրականությունն ընդհանրապես ինձ հետաքրքրել է, շատերին եմ կարդացել, երբ դեռ 14-15 տարեկան էի: Ու դրա շնորհիվ սիրել եմ Վրաստանն ու վրացիներին: Հեյ գիդի ժամանակներ:

If you ever travel to Georgia take this book with you - you won't regret it. The book will make you understand the country and the people a bit better.

one of the most hilarious and heartwarming books I've ever read. A childhood favorite. I read it once every couple of years and still crack up at Zoriko's adventures.

Wonderful, just wonderful book. Short stories that reminded me of Fazil Iskander who i love endlessly. Too bad it's so short.
