The first president of Georgia Zviad Gamsakhurdia is one of the most significant figures of contemporary Georgian history. It was due to his great efforts and leadership that national movement resulted in freeing Georgia from the Soviet Regime and restoring its independence.
The stories assembled in this book tell us about Zviad Gamsakhurdia as a political figure, a scholar, a poet and a translator and a dissident who still as a child genetically inherited his father's word: "Remember, life is utterly boring if a man's heart is not burning for some high and inspiring purpose."
"79 stories – Zviad Gamsakhurdia" brings together personal notes and memoirs of his confederates and adversaries, colleagues, supporters and opponents, of the people who came in contact with Gamsakhurdia for different reasons at different times and of the witnesses of certain events.
