For the majority of people outside Georgia, the name won’t mean much at first. In his home country, Morchiladze is a celebrity author, TV presenter, soap writer, sports columnist and so famous that he coined himself a pseudonym. He has written 25 books. They’ve sold in huge numbers for Georgia. Not one of them has been translated. Until now.  Now Munich’s Pendo Verlag has published his book “Santa Esperanza”, and it is, put nicely, the zaniest and most swashbuckling work of the season. “Santa Esperanza” is not a book, but a collection of small rainbow-coloured booklets in a caramel-coloured felt slipcase.
