This wicked and droll satire-cum-romcom takes place aboard the titular Literature Express, a European whistlestop train abrim with snickering and bitching and intrabonking East European writers, and follows the misfortunes of Zaza—a minor Georgian writer who has a chance to cash in on the Georgian wave with his short volume of stories, but who spends his time attempting to mount the married eye-flirt Helena. A chortlesome choo-choo of cruel caricatures and rich in political satire and observatio ...more

How Properties of Literature are Eclipsed by Representations of National Identity

This is a story of a group of “mediocre writers” who are on a sponsored rail tour of Europe. Even in translation it’s often funny, and there are entertaining characterizations of Georgians (they aren’t comfortable in Europe, they blush easily) and people from other nations (especially Russians, but also Chechens, Azeris, Armenians, Belarusians, Bulgarians, and Romanians). The many descriptions of nations and tempera

I bought this novel because it was an English translation of a contemporary Georgian writer. The story is about a group of 100 writers from different European countries, who embark on a train journey across Europe fro Lisbon to Warsaw. The protagonist and narrator, Zaza is a Georgian writer, a reluctant writer, who has only published one volume of short stories, "fifteen literary tiddlers". There are two other Georgians, Zviad, a poet and Iliko, who acts like a guide and translator. Iliko and Zv ...more

the lit train, carrying eastern European writers from lisbon to moscow, looping back to berlin for a month. this is the novel of the ride. the hilarious, cheesy, sad, stereotypical, geopolitical, farcical ride.
this title from the new dalkey archive georgian literature series.

Man sperre 100 europäische Schriftsteller in einen Zug, transportiere sie quer durch die Länder und kröne am Ende das beste, literarische Erzeugnis. Ein Experiment, das nach merkwürdigen Momenten und Begegnungen schreit - und so wohl nur als Buch aufgehen kann. Lasha Bugadze - einer der erfolgreichsten Autoren Georgiens - zaubert mit leichter Hand dieses Szenario, dass die Eigenheiten diverser Länder verbindet und Europa aus einem selten wahrgenommenen Blickwinkel zeigt.

Vermischt mit politische

كاتب شاب من جورجيا يجد نفسه في رحلة على متن قطار تحمل 100 أديباً وتجوب اوروبا تحت مسمى "إكسبريس الأدب"، مذكرات ممتعة وخفيفة وتنطوي على كثير من السخرية في مناقشتها للقضايا السياسية والأدبية وحياة الكتاب والادباء.

This novel describes the events that unfold when fifty European authors are sent on a journey by train across the continent to meet new acquaintances and find inspiration. The narration follows Zaza, an author from Georgia, who had recently experienced a few personal setbacks. The book describes not only the events at the different stations of the train, but also an extramarital and complicated love affair.

The book is overall very meta, as it is writing about writing, authors, publishing and mea

Irgendwie hat mich der Klappentext in die Irre geführt, ich habe immer auf die große Überraschung, die große Wendung, den wahren Grund der Reise gewartet; mitunter hat das meine Erwartungen beeinflusst.
Die Geschichte ist persönlich geschrieben (und gut übersetzt!), der Einblick in die (georgische) Literaturwelt sehr unterhaltsam, an manchen Stellen mit angenehm trockenen Humor versehen. Einige Kapitel enden mit der Sichtweise eines Autorenkollegen, sei es als Brief, Tagebucheintrag, E-Mail, was

هذا العمل الأدبي يعتبر الأول والوحيد المترجم للغة العربية للأديب الجورجي لاشا بوجادزه ، عن قطار الأدب يحمل بداخله مائة أديب أوروبي يقومون بجولة عبر أوروبا ، يتخلل الرحلة العديد من الأحداث و تثار العديد من القضايا السياسية والعاطفية والأدبية والدينية. وهي مذكرات حقيقية للروائي قام بإعادة إحيائها لكن عبر الورق وبتغيير لأسماء الشخصيات. عمل خفيف و جميل وجهد قوي مبذول من المترجم المصري لتقديم عمل جورجي باللغة العربية.

ბუღაძის საუკეთესო რომანია ჩემი აზრით!! ძალიან კარგი ქნეს უცხოურ ენებზე რომ თარგმნიან. ეს პატარა ქვეყნის ლიტერატურული პრობლემა ჩვენნაირი ერებისთვის ძალზედ აქტუალურია.. ამიტომ კარგი იქნება, რომ ლიტერატურული ექსპრესი იმ ქვეყნებში გამოიცეს, რომლებიც ნახსენებია ნაწარმოებში..

100 Autoren reisen per Zug durch Europa - die Sicht des jungen georgischen Autors auf seine Kolleginnen und Kollegen ist nicht frei von Stereotypen, aber dadurch auch höchst humorvoll und erhellend. Und dann ist da noch die schöne Griechin Helena.
