Der jährige Said erzählt die Geschichte seiner jungen verheirateten Schwägerin Dshamilja Während ihr ungeliebter Ehemann an der Front steht lernt die selbstbewusste lebensfroh I bought this little book in a charity shop on a total whim purely because I didn't think I had ever read an author from Kyrgyzstan I am so glad I did because it was absolutely wonderful The narrator of the tale is teenager Seit and Jamilia is his sister in law The story tells of the love between Jamilia and a shy newcomer to the village Daniyar I think because it is told by the youngster there is a certain innocence in the telling which is very effective My copy of this book has a uote on the front cover to the effect that this is the most beautiful love story in the world What that doesn't convey is that this is not just a love story in the sense of a romance but also about a deeper love a love for the land for tradition for music for art for life itself Take for example this description of Seit hearing Daniyar sing for the first time He was a man deeply in love I felt it was not simply a love for another person it was somehow an uncommon expansive love for life and earth He had kept his love within himself in his music in his very being A person with no feeling no matter how good his voice could never have sung like thatThere is such a wonderful sense of time and place here too I felt totally immersed in rural life on the steppe The languagetranslation is lyrical and flowing I loved the fact too that the romantic heroine Jamilia is a strong capable and assertive womanThis book is an absolute gem I loved it can you tell
