Beautiful, complex, and full of history that connects the characters in the Ukrainian protests and fight against Russia in 2013-2014. I read this months before Russia's further invasion, and it feels well-timed and tells the important recent history in a compelling narrative.— Georg
Pickhart's debut novel is an incredibly intimate account of Ukraine and her troubles. Following a few charaters during and after the Maiden Revolution and the subsequent War in the Donbas, Pickhart has created an emotionally breathtaking and insightful story that closely mirrors reality. I was particularly taken when father says to mother, regarding their young children's desire to partake in a the protests where many have been injured or killed--"It is their future." There are many instances of bravery, dogged duty, and a fierce desire to enact lasting change. A worthy testament to the tenacity of Ukraine's people.— Cooper

“Camera-eye perspective of the Ukraine Euromaidan protests — if John Dos Passos and John Reed joined Pussy Riot — rich, variegated characters, tense plot. A must read for anyone inclined toward world literature.”
— Conor Hultman, Square Books, Oxford, MS
