A Portrait Of Writer Chingiz Aitmatov

Relatives of Chingiz Aitmatov say they are facing eviction from the late Kyrgyz writer's villa in Peredelkino, just south of Moscow. The case has fuelled concerns that Peredelkino, a cottage complex established in the 1930s as a literary retreat for Soviet writers, is under threat from aggressive construction.
