‘Basa Janikashvili has brought into his book almost everything that has happened to him and his country over the last twenty years, and has tried to use a very simple, elementary language to talk about simple or funny, open or covert enthusiasms, situations in which he personally found himself, and about the people he met. All this is unified by music, contemporary pop culture, which imbued all our Soviet childhood, but turned into a powerful torrent from the end of the 1980s onwards. Basa’s book deals with this period in particular, and he is one of the very first to devote a novel entirely to a popular subculture.’
