Azerbaijan – Burning of Azeri author Akram Aylisli”s books, Ganja

The novel “Stone Dreams” by Akram Aylisli, a renowned Azerbaijani writer, portrays brutal campaigns by his fellow Azerbaijanis against Armenians, notably the notorious January 1990 pogrom in Baku in which Armenians were murdered by the dozens and expelled from the city.

The book’s publication in a Russian literary magazine late last year sparked a government-orchestrated outcry in Azerbaijan recently. Government officials, pro-government politicians and public figures there accused Aylisli of betraying his nation by ignoring the sufferings of Azerbaijanis in the Karabakh dispute.
