Born in Chechnya is an autobiographic novel. It depicts the ethnic contradictions during the escalation of Chechen conflict. The narrator revisits historic aspects of its roots. The novel deals with the inevitability of ethical choices made by its central characters.
Sofia, a local Russian professional woman in her late thirties, divorced, with two young daughters and Mark, a British salesman, met in the early 90s in Grozny. The capital of the former Chechen-Ingush Autonomous Republic of the Soviet Union is on the brink of political upheaval. Trapped in a situation of extreme danger, Sofia is writing a book in attempt to make sense of the roots of the Chechen problem. Her reflections on historical issues of Chechnya take her back to her childhood memories and the stories told to her by her grandmother.
This is a pioneering initiative with the purpose of increasing Mira’s participation in the local community in Leeds and Yorkshire.
We are planning to publish a series of books tackling issues related to; homelessness, refugees, young offenders, the elderly and other challenging matters facing the community.
Each book will cost about £5000 (including research and printing). 25% of the sale proceeds will go to the related charity and the rest will finance the publishing costs of other community books in the series.
We would be so grateful if you would consider making a financial donation to this worthwhile Project. We appreciate any type of kind donation as every penny is spent wisely and with complete commitment to achieving the end result. Alternatively, you could devote some of your time to help conduct a research or edit a book, if you have the necessary skills.
