Kateryna Kalytko. Zemlya zahublenykh, abo Malenki strashni kazky. (The Land of the Lost, or Little Scary Tales)
"The Land of the Lost daily drifts in the seas of alternative geography strictly in parallel with our everyday, habitual geography. The Land of the Lost arose so that too different people, excluded from the "normal" world, had somewhere to go. It grew out of the need for shelter and restraint. It gets reborn and grows every time someone different is experiencing his/her exclusion, and therefore it is always surrounded by water, like an embryo. Therefore, all the incredibly different people of this small world are relatives in one way or another. This book in the rhythm of breathing is about them. Each story is like a bridge across water, to cross and to learn breathing in unison with others."
