Not a review, but I would like to leave a warm comment here. As an Uzbek, I felt deep pride finding this great work of translation online. I am in Indonesia at the time and just a few minutes ago, I have finished translating Utkir Hoshimov's "The Last Victim of the War" short story. If I could have an access to contact the author - Mahmuda Saydumarova, it would be great to share ideas and experience. Thank you for your efforts, dear Mahmuda!
Sincerely, Maksud Temirov.
