Iunona  Guruli - If Only There Were Light Before It Turns Dark
 
 
 

 

Awarded the prestigious Saba Literature Prize for the best debut

Iunona Guruli creates stories set in the Caucasian country of Georgia that are like spellbinding films and always come to an end too soon. A soft and fluffy bird forgotten in a coat pocket becomes a young girl's guardian angel. The magical tales of the lost father that stand by the young woman in times of dire need.

It is such moments of tenderness as these, moments full of pain, love and hope, that make Iunona Guruli's stories of a torn Georgian adolescence shine and allow her to become one of the most exciting female voices in contemporary Georgian literature.
