Description
This new book, by one of Ukraine's most prominent young literary figures, is an eyewitness account of the political and cultural changes in the tumultuous months of 1990-91 that led to Ukraine's declaration of independence. Solomea Pavlychko, a specialist in British and American literature whose translations include works by D.H. Lawrence and William Golding, provides a lucid, incisive picture of the key events in this remarkable period, capturing superbly the hopes and fears of those involved. Letters from Kiev is expertly translated by Myrna Kostash and the text is fully annotated for the Western reader by Dr. Bohdan Krawchenko, to whom Solomea Pavlychko originally wrote her letters. Also included are a number of memorable pictures of the crisis by Ukrainian photographers.
