What People are Saying About This
“Cho’lpon is a foundational figure of modern Uzbek culture and one of the creators of the modern Uzbek language. Night, his major prose work, was banned almost immediately after publication and was out of print for fifty years. Christopher Fort has done us all a tremendous favor by making it available in English. Thanks to his fluent translation, the English-reading public has for the first time direct access to the world of Turkestan under
Russian rule. A great achievement.” Adeeb Khalid, Carleton College
