Chelsea Mcgill | 1 comments Hello! I am looking for books written by Georgian authors that have been translated into English, or that were originally written in English.

Check out my blog at I plan to feature any books that I like.

Thanks for your recommendations!

Giorgi Aptsiauri (giorgi3092) | 1 comments The Knight in the Panther's Skin, but make sure to get the latest edition if you are interested. The latest one is translated by Lyn Coffin

my biggest recommendations to A MAN WALKED DOWN THE ROAD by Otar Chilashe (published by Garrant Press)
and KVACHI by Mikheil Javakhishvili (published by Dalkey Archive Press)

Jim (jimsbooksreadingstuff) | 1 comments “The Secret of another Desert” by Ia Kargareteli has been translated into English, but it is a poor translation with lots of mistakes.
There is a copy of Nodar Dumbadze's "I See the Sun" in English translation in Varketili Mediatek.
Vazha Pshavea and Galaktion Tabidze have also been translated into English.
