The book is about great people, – this is how the people’s poet of Tatarstan, laureate of the Republican award named after Gabdulla Tukai Ravil Fayzullin described it. “Literature should unite us, this is its main humane goal,” he said.
White wolves are the key book. She does not give exhaustive answers, but only invites you to talk. A dynamic, exciting story filled with vivid and recognizable images: Karim Khakimov, Akhmat Kadyrov, Ravil Gainutdin. Three styles of storytelling are woven into the book’s plot of the war in Chechnya and the founding of the new state of Saudi Arabia. This was done, according to the author, on purpose, because the book contains different eras, countries, languages, war and peace, prose and poetry, documentary materials, fiction and parables.
