Аннотация: From lyrical realism to mythical storytelling, from comedy to tragedy, this exceptional anthology of prose takes you into the heart of Kazakh culture and outlook. Each author brings to life characters, beliefs and locations that embody Kazakh identity - vast landscapes, noble wildlife, deep family traditions, musicality, kindness, and a restless history, including the struggles under Soviet rule. Yet beyond such borders, there are profound views on universal themes of existence. Featuring a diverse rage of voices and available in English for the first time, these thoughtful and thought-provoking texts reveal the heart of a nation forging its identity afresh from the traditions of the past and its hopes for the future.
