MEDIA REVIEWS
A major contribution to our understanding of Aitmatov's work, and of the importance of the non-Russian literary cultures of what used to be the Soviet Union. Mozur is to be congratulated for having produced a thorough and perceptive analysis that should enable Aitmatov's difficult, wide-ranging and highly original oeuvre to become more accessible to the English-speaking world.
Russian Review"
"Mozur s study serves as a well-organized introduction to Aitmatov s work . . . It expands the traditional image of a literature made by Russian-born writers only and clearly points out the direction in which in the post-Soviet world it seems to be going for in the last few years: the expansion of national and ethnic literatures free of ideological constraints."
