Writing from Ukraine: Fiction, Poetry and Essays since 1965

by Mark Andryczyk (Editor) - £10.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2022)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781802061642 | ISBN 10: 1802061649

A selection of fifteen of Ukraine's most important, dynamic and entertaining contemporary writers.
 
Under USSR rule, the subject matter and style of literary expression in Ukraine was strictly controlled and censored. But once Ukraine gained independence in 1991 its literary scene flourished, as the moving and delightful poems, essays and extracts collected here show.
 
There are fifteen authors included in this book, both established and emerging, and in this anthology we see them grappling with history and the future, with big questions and small moments.
 
From essays about Chernobyl to poetry about Robbie Williams, from fiction discussing Jimmy Hendrix live in Lviv to underground Ukrainian poetry of the Soviet era, Writing from Ukraine offers a unique window into a rich culture, a chance to experience a particularly Ukrainian sensibility and to celebrate Ukraine's nationhood, as told by its writers.
