Kaharlyk by Oleh Shynkarenko

Kaharlyk began on Facebook as a series of bulletins from an alternative reality and is written entirely in blocks of 100 words. Andrei Kurkov describes it as a 'hologrammatic' novel. The book is set in Ukraine after a war with Russia. A man regains conciousness in a mysterious hospital-like building and begins a pilgrimage to find his past. Kaharlyk has featured in Index on Censorship, The Economist and The Guardian.

Raven's way is a cocktail of fact and fiction because the author, Vasyl Shkliar, has used authentic KGB reports to piece together the stories of the warriors who lived in underground tunnels, and whose tactics foreshadowed the Vietcong's use of subterranean passages many years later. Raven's Way grips the reader from the first page and tells the story of one of Europe's most remarkable resistance movements for the first time.

Episodic Memory is both a prose masterpiece and a vast, lyrical poem. It tells the story of a young girl growing up in a Ukrainian village and her return, as an adult, to be at her dying mother's bedside. While staying in her parents' house after the funeral she is haunted by memories of a vanished world where Gypsies sang their way over the Steppe, and the postman, a KGB informer, hurled the post at the gate-post as his wagon hurtled past.

The August Rain is PEN award winning poet and translator Stephen Komarnyckyj's first collection of original poetry.

This is a book through which memory and its voices lap like waves.
Sean Street, Poet and BBC Broadcaster

Drawing force... from an English visionary tradition that leads right back to Caedmon , Stephen Komarnyckyj’s is a serious poetry of life’s elemental mysteries and sorrows.
Vivek Narayanan, Poet
