Ukraine Diaries, Paperback / softback Book

Ukraine Diaries Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

-16 DegreesC, sunlight, silence. I drove the children to school, then went to see the revolution.

I walked between the tents. Talked with rev olutionaries. They were weary today. The air was thick with the smell of old campfires. Ukraine Diaries is acclaimed writer Andrey Kurkov's first-hand account of the ongoing crisis in his country.

From his flat in Kiev, just five hundred yards from Independence Square, Kurkov can smell the burning barricades and hear the sounds of grenades and gunshot. Kurkov's diaries begin on the first day of the pro-European protests in November, and describe the violent clashes in the Maidan, the impeachment of Yanukovcyh, Russia's annexation of Crimea and the separatist uprisings in the east of Ukraine.

Going beyond the headlines, they give vivid insight into what it's like to live through - and try to make sense of - times of intense political unrest.
