Rare second edition of Nazim Hikmet Ran's 'Cloud in love' in Russian as well as in any Slavic languages, translated by Russian Turcolog and philologist Lely Nikolayeviç Starostov, (1924-1985). It's an allegorical story about an evil desert spirit who tries to destroy an oasis that is tendered by beautiful Aishe. Luckily, a Cloud falls in love with her and protects the oasis, although it costs him a life. This script also was used as it was for Soviet animation with the same title 'Vlyublennoye oblako', which was made in 1959 by Roman Kachanov, one of the pioneers of Soviet stop motion animation.
