Leo Vardiashvili arrived in London as a 13 year old refugee from Georgia. 

His family was forced to flee after their country descended into civil war after breaking away from the Soviet Union.

Hard by a Great Forest, his debut novel, draws on this experience, and is winning high praise from reviewers.
