Salman Rushdie. 2 roky, 8 misyatsiv i 28 nochey. (Two Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights)
"This is a tale imbued with magic of great philosopher Ibn Rushd and his unusual offsprings, of an uncompleted philosophical discussion, and of the endless struggle between the good and evil. This fairy tale for adults inspired by the legend of "Thousand and One Nights" and the modern pop culture is about a collision of two worlds the human and supernatural ones, the world of mortal humans and the virtually immortal djinns. This parable novel is about love through centuries and about a failure of love that transforms wisdom into scholasticism and faith into fanaticism. This is a utopia reversed: a story written on behalf of our mysterious distant descendants about our era the insane time, the time of strangeness. It is also as characteristic of Rushdie a story about the triumph of storytelling."
Translated from English by Andriy Savenets
